We present an overview of recent investigations on the dielectric/ferroelectric properties of Dion-Jacobson-type perovskites, including bulk 3D layered systems and their exfoliated 2D nanosheets. In contrast to the Ruddlesden-Popper and Aurivillius phases, the Dion-Jacobson phases in bulk 3D systems have not been important targets for constructing dielectric/ferroelectric materials. However, recent investigations on Dion-Jacobson phases have provided new impetus to dielectric/ferroelectric materials. Dion-Jacobson perovskites can also facilitate delamination into 2D nanosheets. Layer-by-layer engineering of 2D perovskite nanosheets has a great potential for the rational design of new high-k dielectric/ferroelectric materials and nanodevices.
