Mössbauer spectra were recorded of tissue from β-thalassaemia/haemoglobin E spleen, liver, pancreas and heart and of crude haemosiderins (insoluble iron fractions) isolated from the organs. Iron in the crude haemosiderins from the spleen and heart remains paramagnetic below 4.2K indicating that the iron is in a non-crystalline form. Superparamagnetic behaviour of the crude haemosiderins from the pancreas and liver indicate the presence of ferrihydrite cores with some cores with a structure based on defect-goethite.
