Ru1−xSnxSr2EuCu2O8 and Ru1−xSnxSr2GdCu2O8 have been comprehensively studied by microwave and dc resistivity and magnetoresistivity and by the Hall measurements. The ruthenium magnetic ordering temperature Tm is considerably reduced with increasing Sn content. However, doping with Sn leads to only slight reduction of the superconducting critical temperature Tc accompanied with the increase in the upper critical field Bc2, indicating an increased disorder in the system and a reduced scattering length of the conducting holes in CuO2 layers. In spite of the increased scattering rate, the normal state resistivity and the Hall resistivity are reduced with respect to the pure compound, due to the increased number of itinerant holes in CuO2 layers, which represent the main conductivity channel. Most of the electrons in RuO2 layers are presumably localized, but the observed negative magnetoresistance and the extraordinary Hall effect lead to the conclusion that there exists a small number of itinerant electrons in RuO2 layers that exhibit colossal magnetoresistance.
