The perovskite structure is adopted by many compounds in solid-state chemistry. The sensitivity, selectivity, and stability of many perovskite nanomaterials have been devoted the most attention for chemical sensors. They are capable to sense the level of small molecules such as O2, NO, and CO. This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of perovskite nanoscale materials that concentrate on chemical sensors. The perovskite structure, with two differently sized cations, is amenable to a variety of dopant additions. This flexibility allows for the control of transport and catalytic properties, which are important for improving sensor performance. We devote the most attention on the synthesis, structural information, and sensing mechanism. We will later elaborate on the development mechanism of chemical sensors based on perovskite nanomaterials. We conclude this chapter with the personal perspectives on the directions toward future works on a novelty of nanostructured chemical sensors.
