A considerable number of papers have been published on the effects of substitution at either the rare earth or copper sites on the superconducting properties of the Lae CuO4 - and YBa2 Cu3 O7 -type structural families. It is, of course, not possible to discuss here all these results, in spite of their great importance from the physical viewpoint. It should, however, be emphasized that it is very difficult to interpret many of these papers, in spite of their great interest, because the materials are very often not sufficiently characterized from the chemical and crystallographic viewpoints. Indeed, it is easy to understand that if the oxygen content has not been determined accurately, a rigorous interpretation is prevented. In the same way, knowledge of the distribution of cations in the structure, or of their influence on the structural evolution, is important for an understanding of the superconducting properties. Thus, this chapter will focus above all on the chemical and crystallographic aspects of these substitutions and on their relationships with the superconducting properties, especially the evolution of the critical temperature. For practical reasons, most of the references are taken from two conferences that were held in Berkeley, California, in June 1987 and in Interlaken in February 1988 (published in Physica C, Vols.153–155).
