The effects of Li-addition to the high-Tc phase in Bi-Pb-Sr-Ca-Cu-O system have been studied for the samples with the nominal composition of Bi:Pb:Sr:Ca:(Cu, Li)=0.96:0.24:1.0:1.1:(1.6-x, x) heated at 840 to 845°C for 144h in air (x=0 to 0.2). The characterization of the samples has been made by DTA, the measurements of XRD and DC electrical resistivity, SEM observation and ICP analysis. The Li-addition promotes the formation of the high-Tc phase. The sample with x=0.05 heated at 842°C for 144h exhibits Tc=116K, while Tc=109K for the Li-free sample (x=0) heated at 842°C for 120h. The results of ICP analysis showed that the Li content of the samples heated at 842°C for 120h was very low.
