Abstract Within the last twenty years, the status of the spin–orbit interaction has evolved from that of a simple atomic contribution to a key effect that modifies the electronic band structure of materials. It is regarded as one of the basic ingredients for spintronics, locking together charge and spin degrees of freedom and recently it is instrumental in promoting a new class of compounds, the topological insulators. In this review, we present the current status of the research on the spin–orbit coupling in transition metal oxides, discussing the case of two semiconducting compounds, and the properties of surface and interfaces based on these. We conclude with the investigation of topological effects predicted to occur in different complex oxides.
