Solid solutions of Ce0.25Sr1.75(Ni1-yMy)O4-δ (M = Fe or Co, 0 ≤ y ≤ 0.3), having tetragonal K2NiF4-type structure, were synthesized at 1100°C under flowing O2. The a and c-axis lengths of Ce0.25Sr1.75(Ni1-yMy)O4-δ (a = 3.7999(1), c = 12.3760(2) Å for Ce0.25Sr1.75NiO3.75 (y = 0; CeSr7Ni4O15)) increased with increasing y (a = 3.8108(1), c = 12.4268(4) Å for Ce0.25Sr1.75Ni0.7Fe0.3 O4-δ). Decrease of the a-axis length to 3.7975(1) Å and increase of the c-axis length to 12.4302(2) Å were observed by the substitution of Co to the composition of Ce0.25Sr1.75Ni0.7Co0.3 O4-δ. Samples for characterization of the electrical properties were sintered at 1350°C and annealed at 1100°C under flowing O2. The lowest electrical resistivity (1.7 - 3.1 × 10-2 Ωcm at 20 - 800°C) among the solid solutions was measured for Ce0.25Sr1.75(Ni0.7 Fe0.3)O4-δ. Seebeck coefficients of the solid solutions ranged from -22 to -38μVK-1 around 450 - 500°C. The absolute values of the Seebeck coefficients decreased above or below this temperature.
