The temperature variation of magnetization, resistivity, and thermoelectric power of undoped and Y-doped La0.7Sr0.3CoO3 and La0.5Sr0.5CoO3 samples have been investigated. Y-doping decreases the magnetization possibly due to the spin-state transition of Co ions. The low temperature conduction in (La1−y Y y )0.7Sr0.3CoO3 is consistent with the variable range hopping. With Y-doping, value of the Seebeck coefficient increases as Y-doping decreases bandwidth and increases distortion. Seebeck coefficient value also reflects that the orbital stability increases with Sr concentration.
