Nd0.5Ca0.5MnO3 (NCMO) and Nd0.5Sr0.5MnO3 (NSMO) nanoparticles have been synthesized using microemulsion synthesis method, with hexamethylene alkyl, a mixture of OP and 1-hexanol, NaOH as oil phase, surfactant, and precipitating agent, respectively. The phase formation of NCMO and NSMO nanoparticles was examined. The final NCMO and NSMO nanoparticles have average particle size of 24 and 50 nm, respectively, and present high-quality crystallinity. Measurements of the magnetic properties suggest that the charge-order state favored for bulk NCMO phase collapses in NCMO nanoparticles. The spin freezing behavior for both NCMO and NSMO nanoparticles was identified.
