## Abstract

The effect of internal pressure on charge-ordered rare earth manganates of the composition $Ln_{1-x}A_xMnO_3$ (Ln=La, Pr, Nd and A=Ca, Sr) has been studied by varying the average radius of the A site cations $(\langle r_A\rangle)$. increasing $\langle r_A\rangle$ is generally accompanied by an increase in the ferromagnetic transition temperature and a decrease in the charge- ordering transition temperature. On increasing the size of the A site cations by appropriate substitution, charge- ordered insulators such as $Pr_{0.7}Ca_{0.3}MnO_3$ and $Nd_{0.5}Ca_{0.5}MnO_3$ become ferromagnetic, accompanied by an insulator-metal transition. In $Pr_{0.5}Sr_{0.5}MnO_3$, substitution of La in place of Pr destroys the antiferromagnetic transition and favors the ferromagnetic metallic state.
