Recent advances in the preparation and application of perovskite-type oxides as bifunctional electrocatalysts for oxygen reaction and oxygen evolution reaction in rechargeable metal-air batteries are presented in this review. Various fabrication methods of these oxides are introduced in detail, and their advantages and disadvantages are analyzed. Different preparation methods adopted have great influence on the morphologies and physicochemical properties of perovskite-type oxides. As a bifunctional electrocatalyst, perovskite-type oxides are widely used in rechargeable metal-air batteries. The relationship between the preparation methods and the performances of oxygen/air electrodes are summarized. This work is concentrated on the structural stability, the phase compositions, and catalytic performance of perovskite-type oxides in oxygen/air electrodes. The main problems existing in the practical application of perovskite-type oxides as bifunctional electrocatalysts are pointed out and possible research directions in the future are recommended.
