Rich diversity of potential, substantially different micro-structural arrangements - reflecting on the wide potential set of interesting properties, ranging from high electrical conductivity to giant, collossal and/or low-field magnetoresistance to low Curie point - of LaSr-manganite materials opens possibilities for numerous scientific investigations oriented towards revealing correlations on the influence line: procedure of synthesis → inherent properties → measured properties → application of the material. The 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 development of nano-magnetic drug carriers based on these materials. In the course of such an investigation, the mechanism of the formation of the desired manganite compounds by following a classical solid-state preparation method, was also studied.
