The band structure of a general class of buckled square lattice materials is investigated using ab initio calculations along with tight-binding modeling. We show that buckling and spin-orbit interaction give rise to a large Rashba-like splitting in the absence of an external electric field. The generality and the robustness of the effect make this class of materials promising candidates for spintronic applications.
