The study of the anion ordered solid solution in the limit of a low substitution level () has revealed a new and interesting phase diagram. Superconductivity is drastically suppressed as the effect of non-magnetic point defects increases following the digamma behaviour for usual superconductors in the presence of paramagnetic impurities. Then, no long-range order can be stabilized above 0.1 in a narrow window of substitution. Finally, an insulating SDW ground state in -rich samples is rapidly stabilized with the decrease of the potential strength leading to the doubling of the transverse periodicity. This extensive study has shown that the superconducting order parameter must change its sign over the Fermi surface.
