Mechanism of a Solid-State Formation of La1-xSrxMnO3+δ (0 < x < 0.5) and Magnetic Characterization thereof
Investigations of the influence of synthesis procedures and LaSr-manganite stoichiometries on the Curie point and other magnetic characteristics of the material, being the topic of this work, are attractive since they present a necessary primal step in the intended development of nano-magnetic drug carriers based on these materials. In the course of such an investigation, differences in the mechanisms of the formation of desired manganite compounds by following a classical solid-state preparation method, depending on various stoichiometries used, were noticed, with the reaction pathways thereof outlined onward.
