Magnetic properties of basically antiferromagnetic La0.23Ca 0.77MnO3 particles with average sizes of 12 and 60 nm have been investigated in a wide range of magnetic fields and temperature. Particular attention has been paid to magnetization dynamics through measurements of the temperature dependence of ac-susceptibility at various frequencies, the temperature and field dependence of thermoremanent and isothermoremanent magnetization originating from nanoparticles shells, and the time decay of the remanent magnetization. Experimental results and their analysis reveal the major role in magnetic behaviour of investigated antiferromagnetic nanoparticles played by the glassy component, associated mainly with the formation of the collective state formed by ferromagnetic clusters in frustrated coordination at the surfaces of interacting antiferromagnetic nanoparticles. Magnetic behaviour of nanoparticles has been ascribed to a core-shell scenario. Magnetic transitions have been found to play an important role in determining the dynamic properties of the phase separated state of coexisting different magnetic phases.
