The double perovskites Ca2-xSrxMnWO6 (x = 0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) have been prepared as pure phases by a conventional solid-state reaction process. Stoichiometric amounts of CaCO3,SrCO3, MnO and WO3 were mixed, ground and calcined in a nitrogen atmosphere. X-ray and neutron powder diffraction (NPD), together with magnetisation measurements were carried out in order to characterise the materials. The NPD and magnetisation measurements, performed at different temperatures, were made in order to correlate the materials structural and magnetic properties. Susceptibility- Temperature (ϰ-T) curves were measured between 2K and 200K in field cooled (FC) and zero-field-cooled (ZFC) modes with an applied field (H) up to 3T. Rietveld analysis of NPD data shows that the samples were B-site ordered perovskites with different types of lattice symmetry. Magnetisation measurements at low temperatures indicate an antiferromagnetic ordering of the magnetic moments.
