Structural and electrical properties of the mixed-valence monovalent doped manganites Pr0.6Sr0.4-xKxMnO3 (x=0, 0.05 and 0.1), prepared using the conventional solid-state synthesis method, have been investigated. Rietveld refinement of the X-ray diffraction patterns at room temperature shows a slight increase in unit cell volume with K content and confirms that all powder samples are single phase and crystallize in the orthorhombic structure with Pnma space group. Electrical resistivity measurements under and without magnetic field show a transition from the metallic to insulating behavior. The electrical conductivity is improved with increasing K content. The resistivity data in metallic region were fitted according to the electron-electron scattering process while in insulating region they were fitted using the small polaron hopping SPH model and Mott's variable range hopping VRH model. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
