This paper investigates the crystal structure, thermal expansion, and electrical conductivity of two series of perovskites (LaMn0.25-xCo0.75-xCu2xO3-d and La Mn0.75-xCo0.25-xCu2xO3-d with x = 0, 0.025, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, and 0.25) in the quasi-ternary system LaMnO3– LaCoO3–‘‘LaCuO3’’. The Mn/Co ratio was found to have a stronger influence on these properties than the Cu content. In comparison to the Co-rich series (LaMn0.25-xCo0.75-xCu2x O3-d), the Mn-rich series (LaMn0.75-xCo0.25-xCu2xO3-d) showed a much higher Cu solubility. All compositions in this series were single-phase materials after calcination at 1100 �C. The Co-rich series showed higher thermal expansion coefficients (amax = 19.6 9 10-6 K-1) and electrical conductivity (rmax = 730 S/cm at 800 �C) than the Mnrich series (amax = 10.6 9 10-6 K-1, rmax = 94 S/cm at 800 �C). Irregularities in the thermal expansion curves indicated phase transitions at 150–350 �C for the Mn-rich series, while partial melting occurred at 980–1000 �C for the Co-rich series with x[0.15.
