The present work was essentially realized in the Laboratoire de Cristallographie CNRS, Grenoble (France), with some TEM work having been performed in the Electron Microscopy Center of Universidad Complutense. The author acknowledges with thanks everyone in those centers, in particular Catherine Chaillout, J.-J. Capponi, J. L. Tholence and the remaining authors of reference , where a more detailed description of this work can be found. Thanks are also expressed to CICYT for financial support (Program MAT 92/0374).

The perovskite structure (see Figure) is the basis of all known high-temperature superconducting materials. Many of the most successful (ighest Tc) materials are based on mercury and thallium phases but, due to the high toxicity of the component compoudns effort has been invested in the substitution of these elements with silver. Progress is reviewed.
