A systematic study of the Tl0.5Pb0.5Sr2Gd2−xCexCu2O9−δ system has revealed the existence of a pure phase in the compositional. range 0.0≤x≤0.6 crystalizzing in the 1222 structure. It has an intersheet distance of approximately 6 Å, a value much higher than those found in other cuprates with double CuO2 sheets interleaved by a single fluorite layer. Superconductivity has been observed in the range 0.1≤x≤0.4 with a Tc of 45 K and a superconductive volume fraction up to 20% for the optimal composition. An interesting variation of the superconducting properties of the above system with the composition, i.e. cerium content, has also been noticed. A possible dependence of superconductivity on the coupling between CuO2 sheets in the layered cuprates has been pointed out to bring out a correlation between structure and properties.
