    In the present research we studied single phase Nd123ss within a wide range of compositions x=0...0.9 by Raman spectroscopy. For such solid solutions we observed the increase of the area of Raman-active apical oxygen mode for x=0...0.5, and its decrease for higher Nd content, which can be explained by existence of non-random distribution of Nd in Ba(Nd)O layers for x>0.6 resulting in formation of orthorhombic structure of 213. Nevertheless observed Raman, IR-spectra and high oxygen content of Nd-213 (z=7.30) are inconsistent with structural model proposed before. It was found that single phase NdBa2Cu3O7 prepared at low oxygen partial pressure decomposes into BaCuO2 and Nd123ss after subsequent annealing in oxygen at temperature higher than 700°C.
