Magnetic microstructure of iron contained in selected biological tissues is characterized and mutually compared. We have studied three types of biological samples prepared from human brain, human and horse spleen. Original samples were lyophilized (dried in a vacuum) thus providing powder forms. As a principal method of study, ⁵⁷Fe Mössbauer spectrometry in transmission mode was used. The Mössbauer spectrometry experiments were performed at room ( ≈300 K) and at liquid helium (4.2 K) temperature. At room temperature Mössbauer spectra show doublet-like features. Such behaviour indicates possible presence of nanoparticles with fluctuating magnetic moments that acquire arbitrary positions. On the other hand, low temperature Mössbauer spectrometry measurements demonstrate significant contribution of sextets that confirmed occurrence of blocked magnetic moments of iron-containing particles. Different relative contributions of magnetic components in the low temperature spectra for the three inspected biological tissues suggest differences in the blocking temperatures of the magnetic nanoparticles present in them.
