Major attention has been focused on the structure and properties of pyrochlore-like (Ln2 xZrx)Zr2O7+x/2 (Ln=Nd, Sm) solid solutions with x = 0–0.78, which are thought to be potential interstitial oxide ion conductors. The crystal structure of the solid solutions has been investigated by X-ray and neutron diffraction techniques using Rietveld refinement, and their microstructure has been examined by SEM. The excess oxygen content of the (Ln2-xZrx)Zr2O7+x/2 (Ln= Nd, Sm; x=0.2;0.32) pyrochlore-like solid solutions has been determined by thermal analysis and mass spectrometry in a reducing atmosphere (H2/Ar-He). The transport properties of the solid solutions in the two systems have been studied by impedancespectroscopy in air. © International Union of Crystallography
