Synthesis and structural details of MSr2RECu2Oz (M-1212) compounds with M = Ga, Nb, Fe, Al and Co) and RE = Eu, Y are reported. Reitveld refinement of X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns shows that all compounds are crystallized in single phase. Nb-, Fe- and Al-1212 possess tetragonal P4/mmm space group structure while the Ga-1212 and Co-1212 are crystallized in orthorhombic Ima2 space group. The change of space group from P4/mmm to Ima2 indicating towards the doubling of unit cell. The buckling angle [Cu(2)–O(2)–Cu(2) angle] shows that most of the studied samples are heavily under doped and hence they could not exhibit superconductivity. Thermogravimetric (TGA) analysis shows the M-1212 compounds to be more stable than widely studied 90 K superconductor Cu-1212 (RE-123).
