    We attempted synthesis of a single-phase Bi2Sr2Ca1−xYxCu2Oy (0 ≦ x ≦ 0.4) from citrate sol-gel precursors and the dependence of the superconducting transition on the hole concentration was studied. The main advantages of the sol-gel precursor method are the shorter reaction time, the elimination of some steps such as centrifugation and a fine control of pH. Powder X-ray diffraction analysis showed that the samples have a single phase, except for x = 0.1. The superconducting transition was measured in terms of complex susceptibility. The highest transition temperature TC(onset) was observed for the x = 0.1 sample, being 95.2 K. The results for five samples with different values of x are described.
