Given that energy scales associated with crystal field splitting, spin orbit coupling and coulomb correlations in iridates are comparable, hence leading to exotic properties, we investigate the physical properties of orthorhombic SrIrO3 using density functional theory. Our calculations, however, show that SrIrO3 is a bad metal with no long range magnetic ordering, unlike its sister compounds Sr2IrO4 and Sr3Ir2O7. Moreover, despite having large band width, it appears conclusive that the larger resistivity in SrIrO3 is due to spin orbit interactions. Besides, the effects of electron-electron correlations on its electronic structure and magnetic properties are also discussed.
