    In order to investigate solid state phase transformation in solid, Nd1+xBa2-xCu3O6+∂ powders with different compositions were annealed under different annealing conditions. The temperature-substitution ratio-oxygen content phase diagram of Nd1+xBa2-xCu3O6+∂ solid solution was constructed. The condition to occur Nd123ss phase separation was clarified by investigating the compositional fluctuation, XRD pattern, the time dependences of Tc properties and oxygen content. Solid state phase transformation of Nd123ss advances with two steps. Tetragonal orthorhombic phase transition due to oxygen introduction occurs at first, and then the orthorhombic phase with small x decomposes to the two phases by spinodal decomposition.
