Samples with the stoichiometric composition Bi2Sr2-xKxCa1-yNayCu 2Oz with x = 0.1 and y = 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4 were prepared by the solid state reaction method. The role of Na and K doped at the Ca and Sr sites simultaneously in the Bi-2212 composition was studied. From the x-ray diffraction data it was found that the structure is single-phase Bi-2212. From the resistivity data the Tc(0) varies from 63 to 67 K for different dopant levels. The diamagnetic nature of the samples was confirmed by ac susceptibility measurements. The oxygen content was determined by the two-step iodometric titration technique. The present results on the effect of double doping are compared with those of single dopants published earlier by our group. The microstructures of the samples were examined by scanning electron microscopy.
