Abstract: The composites of La2/3Ca1/3MnO3:xSiO2 (0less-than-or-equals, slantxless-than-or-equals, slant0.40) have been synthesized by sol–gel technique to derive homogeneous nanocomposites. Si4+ by virtue of its strong preference for tetrahedral site does not enter the perovskite lattice. The percolation threshold composition has been determined by resistivity measurements at around 90% volume fraction of LCMO. A detailed electrical, magnetic and magneto-transport characterizations have been carried out for composites around the threshold composition (x=0.05,0.10,0.15). The magnetoresistance results at 1 T show a sharp peak at Tc and a minimum just below Tc as reported in several polycrystalline LCMO composites.
