A series of mixed oxides of general formula Sm1-xAgxMnO3 with perovskite structure were prepared by first time by conventional solid-state reaction processing. The structure, morphology and magnetism of the samples are investigated. The X-ray diffraction patterns show that the x = 0.1 sample is a single perovskite structure, while x ≥ 0.2, samples consist of a ferromagnetic perovskite phase and two nonmagnetic phases, Ag and Ag1.8Mn8O16. The ferromagnetic behavior of Sm1-xAgxMnO3 decrease with increase of Ag composition. The SEM analysis when x = 0.1 revealed that the random distribution of morphology and size of particles result of preparation method. The samples of Sm1-xAgxMnO3 by x between 0.1 and 0.5 show that applying 10 T fields these cannot reach a saturation value.
