We report the results on structural aspects, magnetic, and superconducting properties of the La1-xPrxBaCaCu3O7 system. Both x-ray and neutron diffraction studies reveal that Pr substitutes isostructurally in the tetragonal LaBaCaCu3O7 (La:1113) system until the complete replacement of La by Pr. The superconducting transition temperature, Tc , determined from ac susceptibility measurements decreases, with increasing x. The relative Tc depression due to Pr in the LaBaCaCu3O7 superconductor is less in comparison to that found for La-site Pr substituted LaBa2Cu3O7 (La:123). While the critical Pr concentration (xcr) to completely suppress the superconductivity in the former is around 70 at. % of Pr at La site, the same is reported as only 30 at. % for the latter. For nonsuperconducting samples, i.e., for x=0.70 and 1.0, possible antiferromagnetic ordering with Neel temperatures, TN , of 4 and 8 K, respectively, are observed from both dc magnetic and heat capacity measurements. Interestingly in the La1-xPrx :1113 system the xcr of Pr is 0.70, and TN of Pr:1113 is 8 K, while for the La1-xPrx :123 system xCr is 0.30 and TN of Pr:123 is 17 K. The results are explained on the basis of distribution of Pr at both RE and Ba sites in the RE:1113 structure. This leads to a lower TN and a less deleterious effect of Pr on superconductivity of La:1113 compared to La:123.
