    • Abstract

       

      The layered manganite Nd2−2xSr1+2xMn2O7, with x varying between 0 and 0.5, has been synthesized using solid-state reaction method. We have found that Nd2−2xSr1+2xMn2O7 do not form the single-phase layered compound with A3B2O7 structure. Instead, mixtures of various phases, such as, orthorhombic perovskite, i.e., Nd1−zSrzMnO3, layered manganite and unreacted starting compounds, have been obtained. Except for x=0.4, which is found to be an antiferromagnetic insulator, all other x values yielded metal-insulator transition and ferromagnetic ordering.
