Preparation and magnetic properties of La0.9Ca0.1MnO3 nanoparticles at 300 °C
Nanosized La0.9Ca0.1MnO3 perovskite-type crystalline complex oxides have been prepared at the low calcination temperature of 300 °C. The preparation procedure was carried out by the two-step process of amorphous formation and calcination. The amorphous phase was obtained by the reaction of metal ions with tetrabutylammonium hydroxide at 245 °C, and then calcined at 300 °C (sample A) or 400 °C (sample B) to prepare the nanocrystalline materials. The magnetic measurement shows that spin-glass behavior exists at 45 K and the blocking temperature increases with an increase of calcination temperature. ...
