The results of a systematic study on compositional dependence of the Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu oxide superconductors are presented. The optimal range of Pb substitution for Bi in the stability of Bix-2PbxSr2Ca2Cu3Oδ is determined to be 0.20 ≤x≤ 0.35. There is a limited range of solid solution for Sr replacing Ca. But Bi substituting Ca can lead to the instability of 2223 structure. Once the 2223 is formed, its oxygen content is quite stable.
