BaKPbO and BaKPbBiO single crystals were electrodeposited on anode by the molten salt electrochemical method using KOH/KNO3 as flux. It is found that the K content decreases when the KNO3 concentration in the flux increases. On the other hand, when the KNO3 concentration in the flux is constant, the K content increases as the Bi content in the BaKPbBiO crystals increases. The magnetic susecptibility measurements show that Ba-K-Pb-Bi-O crystals are superconducting while BaKPbO crystals are not. XPS analyses reveal that the M(M=Pb, Bi)6s-O2p valence band moves toward the Fermi level when the Bi content in BaKPbBiO decreases.
