The valence state of Mn in magnetoresistive perovskites has been widely related to the level of alkaline metal substitution of the rare earth, by assuming that the Mn exists in 3 + or 4+ valence states. Measurements have been made on a series of samples in the system Pr1-(x+y)(CaxSryMnO3. Mn-55 nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) zero field spin echo measurements on a single crystal with x=0.1 and y = 0 show distinct resonances around 310 MHz (Mn4+) and 400 MHz (Mn3+) but also at 590 MHz (Mn2+). An increase in the Mn2+ resonance frequency in an applied field implies that the Mn2+ moment is antiferromagnetically coupled to the net magnetization. Spectra from powder samples are much broader. The resonance frequencies increase as the Pr content is reduced. For systems with x + y = 0.4, there is little change in the NMP spectrum as the proportions of Ca and Sr are altered.
