Various criteria of formation of perovskites and K2NiF4-type compounds, which are the end members of homologous Ruddlesden-Popper series of phases, have been discussed. RP-phases show some general trends in their physical properties. Literature survey of the formation of these phases, their properties, and effect of oxygen stoichiometry and doping is presented. Some conditions for their synthesis are also described.
