With the increasing demand and depleting trend of commercial energies, it has forced the researchers all over the world to accelerate research and development in the area of renewable energy. Currently, unique and interesting features of binary compounds have gained more attention by researchers, and it became a favourite research topic among various groups of researchers around this world. It was noticed that strontium titanate (SrTiO3) consists of several extraordinary properties that can apply for miscellaneous applications especially for energy storage, fuel cells, as well as to generate hydrogen fuel via photocatalysis process. Besides that, it was noticed that SrTiO3 can be synthesised in different pathways. The method of preparation and amount of precursors can affect the surface properties of SrTiO3. Thus, this article presents a critical review on how SrTiO3 synthesis methods affect its surface morphology and the applications of SrTiO3 in various fields.
