  4. Abstract:
  5. Among all the rare earth elements, Pr is known to behave as a singularity in the high-Tc families. When high-temperature cuprates are doped with Pr the superconductivity is quenched, and a metal insulator transition occurs. The origin of this behavior, being of fundamental interest, may also shed light on the mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity, since any reasonable theory for this mechanism should explain the behavior of the Pr-based system. The physical properties and the several theories which have been proposed to describe the anomalous behavior of Pr-doped systems in the normal and superconducting states are reviewed. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
