Graphical Abstract:


Background: Strontium titanate (SrTiO3, STO) has a typical perovskite structure with unique physical and chemical properties, being widely used as a functional material in electronic, piezoelectric and photocatalytic devices.

Method: Combining existing properties with high specific area and regular geometric morphology to attain more accurate characteristics, nanoscale SrTiO3 has been generated.

Observation: This review introduces STO and doped nonstoichiometric STO nanomaterials, especially barium strontium titanate (BST). Furthermore, nano-STO morphology control in solvothermal synthesis and self-assembly in fabrication are discussed.

Result: The relevant applications such as in transistors and memory devices, thermoelectric ceramics, and solar cells are also addressed.

Keywords: Strontium titanate, nanocubes, morphology control, self-assembly, application, nanorods.
