Cuprates of the formula TlSr3−xLnxCu2O7 (Ln=Pr, NdorY) derived from the hypothetical TlSr3Cu2O7 show superconductivity with Tcs up to 95 K when 0.5less, approximatex≤0.75, the x=1.0 compositions being insulators. Rietveld analysis of X-ray diffraction profiles has been carried out for two superconducting members of this family. The unit cell a-parameter, and hence the in-plane Cu-O distance, increases with increase in x. The Tc value decreases with increase in x or the in-plane Cu-O distance in all the series of cuprates. Superconductivity in the Tl1−yPbySr3−xNdxCu2O7 systems is found with the highest Tc of 95 K when y=0.2 and x=0.5. The in-plane Cu-O distances in all the cuprates studied fall in the range found in the Sr-class of cuprate superconductors.
