A large entropy variation (magnetocaloric effect) has been discovered in ceramic perovskites with the formulas La0.65Ca0.35Ti1-xMnxO3-z and La0.5+x+yLi0.5-3yTi1-3xMn3xO 3-z. Both Curie temperature and entropy change were studied from 4.2 to 400 K for different stoichiometric compositions and applied magnetic fields. Our conclusion is that these materials are excellent candidates for working materials in magnetic refrigeration and liquefaction devices in a wide temperature range.
