La1-xSrxMnO3 (x=0.3) (LSM) nanoparticles were prepared by a sonication-assisted coprecipitation method. The coprecipitation reaction is carried out with ultrasound radiation. Lower sintering temperatures are required for the sonication-assisted product. Fully crystallized LSM with an average particle size 24nm is obtained after the as-prepared mixture is annealed at 900°C for 2h. Magnetic properties indicate that the transition temperature from the paramagnetic to ferromagnetic state of the sample is quite sharp and occurs at 366K for samples annealed for 2h at 900 and 1100°C.
