We have performed dc magnetization measurements on (Sm1-yNdy)0.52Sr0.48MnO3 (0 ≤ y ≤ 1) single crystals to study the nature of ferromagnetic to paramagnetic phase transition. For y = 0, ferromagnetic transition is first-order along with a discontinuous change in magnetization at TC (110 K) with the presence of thermal hysteresis. With increasing Nd doping (y), TC increases while thermal hysteresis starts to decrease which eventually vanishes at around y = 0.4, suggesting that first-order ferromagnetic transition becomes second-order in nature at that Nd concentration. The variation of TC with y has been explained in terms of the average A-site cation radius and quenched disorder.
