Perovskites are one of the most important classes of inorganic materials, thanks to a variety of their functional properties and inherent chemical and structural flexibilities. This chapter provides a brief review on crystal chemistry and crystallography of perovskites with emphasis on the achievements made within the last 10-15 years. The topics covered include cooperative octahedral tilting distortions in perovskites, lone-pair-driven and electronic instabilities, ordering phenomena at cation and anion sublattices, and aperiodic order in perovskites and mixed-anion perovskites. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
