Transition metal oxide phases have been studied intensively in recent years due to their flexible chemistry that may potentially lead to novel physical and chemical properties. Low-temperature synthetic strategies allow for the reduction of traditional high-valent transition metal oxides into low-valent ones, where the metaloxide frameworks have lower dimensions and the central metal cations have lower coordination numbers. In particular, for the perovskite family, the reduced phases consist of two-dimensional layers with the metals located in square-planar coordination environments. The structural stability of these apparently two-dimensional systems comes from the strong intrinsic electronic interactions. In this thesis, the electronic structure of layered oxides containing the low-valent metal cations V3+, Ti3+, Ni+ and Ru2+ is discussed in detail.
