Magnetic properties of the nanocomposite materials containing particles of rare earth titanates with pyrochlore structure have been investigated. For the nanocomposites with Gd2Ti2O7, La2Ti2O7 it has been observed that the effective magnetic moment in the nanocomposites differs substantially from that for Gd3+ and La3+ ions. The hysteresis loops was obtained for the nanocomposites with Dy3+, Gd3+, Yb3+, Er+, Sm3+ ions. There is no hysteresis loops for the nanocomposites with La2Ti2O7, Pr2Ti2O7 and Nd2Ti2O7 particles. It has been shown that nanocomposites with Yb2Ti2O7, Dy2Ti2O7 and Er2Ti2O7 particles have one crossing point on the descending branches of hysteresis loop in some temperature range.
