Perovskite oxide–based photocatalysts are classified as a compound with general formula ABO3. They are novel materials that exhibit unique properties such as wide range of ferroelectrical, piezoelectrical, and pyroelectrical properties and electro-optical effects, which enable them to be used for various applications. This chapter discusses and studies the preparation, characterization, and application of the various perovskite oxide–based photocatalysts . Moreover, this chapter also provides an in-depth study to understand their electron mobility under visible light–sensitive applications ranging from environmental remediation to energy conversion. At the end of this chapter, the potential and future perspectives of these materials are summarized..
