The 2H-perovskite related oxides are an interesting variant of the ABO3 perovskite structure family, however understanding which cation ratios produce which products isn’t always a straightforward task. Hans-Conrad zur Loye and team have compiled an extensive review of this remarkable structure family, compiling a database of recently synthesised compositions that have different cation ratios. By looking at the compositions and structures of these compounds the team have developed a simple method to predict new compositions, an indispensible tool for the synthetic chemist!
