We present experimental data of magnetization and magneto-resistance of nanostructured La2/3B1/3MnO3 with BZCa, Sr, which presentdifference between the coercive field in the magnetization loop with their corresponding maximum value in the magneto-resistance. Thisdifference is described by a model that include, size distribution of magnetic particles, randomly oriented anisotropy axis and electronictransfer between the particles, which is mediated by spin-polarized tunneling process. Also, the model predicts that the maximum magnetoresistancecan be, in the magnetic disorder state, two times larger than the experimental value. The model results can be used to estimate thesize dispersion of nanoparticles in similar systems.
