Three new Pt complex oxides have been identified as products of the CuO-flux growth of R-Ba-Cu-O superconducting oxides in platinum crucibles. A growth mechanism for the three Pt compounds involving incorporation of Pt from the crucible is proposed. The crystal structure of R2Ba2CuPtO8 has been determined and its relationships to physical properties are discussed.
