Abstract We report our analysis of resistivity data on Nd0.67Sr 0.33MnO3 polycrystalline samples as a function of preparative conditions using a bond percolation model for a random mixture of metallic and insulating regions, assuming polaronic transport above and below the metal-insulator (M-I) transition temperature. Our analysis suggests that for oxygen deficient compounds the M-I transition that occurs at a lower temperature than the ferromagnetic transition arises from a percolation of the metallic regions. The temperature dependence of resistivity and thermopower suggests the existence of a bimodal distribution of conductivities.
