The electrical resistance, Meissner signal, magnetoresistance and Hall coefficient of Bi1.75Pb0.25Sr2Ca2Cu3Ox and Bi1.5Pb0.5Sr2Ca2Cu3Ox (nominal compositions) have been measured. Resistance of the Bi1.75Pb0.25 sample becomes zero for T≤106 K while the Bi1.5Pb0.5 sample shows a 65% drop in the resistance around 106 K and TR = 0c ≈ 73 K. Powder X-ray diffraction analysis reveals that the major phase in the Bi1.75Pb0.25 sample is the high-Tc phase and in the Bi1.5 Pb0.5 sample the low-Tc phase. The Hall coefficients (RH) of both samples are positive with R−1H> linear in temperature. The temperature dependence of RH is stronger in the Bi1.75Pb0.25 sample than in the Bi1.5Pb0.5 sample. The carrier concentration determined R−1H for the Bi1.75Pb0.25 and the Bi1.5Pb0.5 samples at 300 K are 1.59 × 1021 cm−3 and 3.66 × 1021 cm−3, respectively. The excess conductivity of both samples is analyzed using the Aslamazov-Larkin expression. The critical exponent λ obtained for the Bi1.75Pb0.25 sample is 0.78 and that for the Bi1.5Pb0.5 sample, in the temperature region where the high-Tc phase contributes only, is 0.77.
