We report detailed normal state measurements of the resistivity, magnetic susceptibility and specific heat of high-quality single crystals of Sr2RuO4, the only copper-free, layered perovskite superconductor (Tc ≈ 1 K). It is intriguing that despite its very strong anisotropy (the ratio of the interlayer to in-plane resistivity exceeds 500) arising from the essentialy two-dimensional Fermi surface, the normal state properties are consistent with a universal description for a strongly correlated Fermi liquid. Therefore, Sr2RuO4 serves as an ideal reference material for the investigation of the limits of applicability of Fermi liquid theory to other highly correlated layered compounds, including high-Tc cuprates.
