Noncentrosymmetric materials are of special interest in materials chemistry owingk to their technologically important properties, such as ferroelectricity and second-order nonlinear optical behavior. Over 500 noncentrosymmetric oxides have been compiled and categorized by symmetry-dependent property and crystal class. In addition, the materials are described by their transition, or main group, metal coordination environment and grouped by element. Similarities within and between groups are discussed, as are noncentrosymmetric structure-property relationships.
