Abstract Using a wet-chemical method based on flow-coulometry, an analytical method to measure unstable ions of copper, $CuO^{+}$ and $Cu^{+},$ in superconductors has been advanced. The distributions of these ions from the surface to inside of sample discs were determined by the developed method. The sample discs, which were prepared by the ceramic method, contained a lower $CuO^{+}/Cu_{total}$ ratio at the outermost surface, and gradually increased to a depth of 200 µm. On the contrary, the $Cu^{+}/Cu_{total}$ ratio in a $YBa_{2}Cu_{3}O_{6}$ sample was almost homogeneous. The positively electrolyzed $La_{2}CuO_{y}$ disc as an electrode exhibited a much higher oxidation state than that without electrolysis. It was confirmed that the $CuO^{+}/Cu_{total}$ ratio on the surface and in the bulk of the electrolyzed $La_{2}CuO_{y}$ had an influence on the superconducting characteristics.
