      The structural study of ZnCuTiO4, ZnCuSnO4 and ZnCuGeO4 reveals that while the cooperativeJ-T effect of Sn4+ is responsible for the orthorhombic symmetry of ZnCuSnO4, the hexagonal influence of Ge4+ is more predominant in ZnCuGeO4. Ti4+ is uninfluential either in initiating the distortive tendency or cooperating with other ions for the same. The XRD,ρRT, ΔE and the nature of the charge carriers, all suggest that the air oxidation of metallic copper leads to the minority concentration of Cu+ along with a majority concentration of Cu2+, as demanded by the stoichiometric considerations of these compositions.

      X-ray crystallographic investigation of the title complex oxide composition reveals the presence of two phases. The first is a spinel phase which is somewhat consistent with Zn2SnO4 witha0=8·646 Å. The other phase has been identified as a non-spinel phase of LiMnSnO4, the presence of which was confirmed by synthesizing it and comparing its XRD pattern with that of the title composition. The exact composition of the two phases has been determined by intensity calculations. It seems that while cooperative J-T effect is responsible for the observed symmetry of LiMnSnO4, the distribution of phase along with separation of phases is attributed to the solubility limit of Sn4+ in such quaternary compositions.

      Two new ternary oxidic compositions of CuNiSnO4 have been prepared. The ternary composition Cu2+Ni2+SnO4 in orthorhombic symmetry with lattice dimensionsa0=5·773 ± 0·01 Å;b0=8·377 ± 0·01 Å;c0=10·094 ± 0·01 Å, while Cu+Ni3+SnO4 is also orthorhombic but with lattice dimensionsa0=5·737 ± 0·01 Å;b0=7·125 ± 0·01 Å andc0=10·071 ± 0·01 Å. The variation of electrical conductance with temperature indicates the semiconducting nature of these compositions. Hot-probe method indicatesp-type semiconduction in both the compositions
