Mo doped ruthenocuprates Ru1-xMoxSr2Eu1.5Ce0.5Cu2O10-delta are synthesized for x=0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0, and their magnetic and superconducting properties are studied. It has been found that the magnetic transition temperature T-ZFC(peak), which corresponds to the appearance of a weak ferromagnetic effect, decreases from its value of 75 K for x=0.0 to 22, 25, and 18 K, respectively for the x=0.2, 0.4, and 0.6 samples. Another finding is that the magnetic susceptibility reduces at T-ZFC(peak) by a factor of about 6, 85, and 413 for x=0.2, 0.4, and 0.6, respectively. The samples of x=0.8 and 1.0 are found to have no magnetic or superconducting effects. The values of the superconducting transition temperature are obtained from the resistivity versus the temperature data. An important result is that T-c increases by 4.5 and 7.0 K for x=0.2 and 0.4, respectively, and then decreases by 17 K for x=0.6. The observed variation of T-c with x has been explained in terms of a theory which combines the effects of weakening magnetic behavior and reducing carrier concentration in a phenomenological manner. The resulting theory is found to provide a good agreement with the observed value of T-c.
