Mossbauer spectroscopy (MS) is a sensitive probe of the local electronic structure and of the local crystallographic, magnetic and chemical environments (Rancourt 1998).
While the X-ray diffraction yields information on the major minerals in clays, Mossbauer spectroscopy looks selectively at the iron-containing compounds that are often difficult to detect by X-ray diffraction due to their low concentration, small particle size, or poor crystallinity.

Magnetic properties of the MA powders and the sintered alloys produced were investigated with Mossbauer spectroscopy. Mossbauer spectra for MA10h and MA30h of Fe-30Mn-5.9Si-0.1C (wt.
The postulate is claimed to have been shown to be true for accelerations of ~[10.sup.16]g in a Mossbauer spectroscopy experiment by Kundig [5] and of ~[10.sup.18]g in Bailey et al's muon experiment [2], which uses rotational motion of particles to generate the acceleration--one obtains the quoted acceleration for a particle velocity close to the speed of light.
Among other cations of transition metals, iron cations are widely used for doping of several semiconductors, due to its high magnetic moment and possibility of characterization by Mossbauer spectroscopy. By replacing a small fraction of the non-magnetic cations (i.e., [Zn.sup.+2] of the ZnO) by magnetic cations (i.e., [Fe.sup.+3] / [Fe.sup.+2] / [Mn.sup.+2]) it is possible to dilute magnetic moments in the host semiconductor lattice.
Mossbauer spectroscopy (MS) was used to determine the chemical state of the Fe atoms before and after the oxidation experiments with a Wissel Mossbauer spectrometer coupled to a [sup.57]Co/Rh source in the constant acceleration mode; for these measurements, the particles were encapsulated inside an epoxy resin to avoid oxidation with air.

Mossbauer spectroscopy is widely used for studying various molecular including biomolecular systems as well as various materials containing Moossbauer isotopes such as [sup.57]Fe, [sup.119]Sn, [sup.121]Sb, [sup.127]I, and [sup.197]Au.
