Nanoparticles of manganese ferrite were obtained by the impregnation of highly ordered mesoporous MCM-41 silica support. The investigated sample contained 20% wt. Fe. The obtained nanocrystallites were strongly dispersed in silica matrix and their size was about 2 nm. The sample annealing at 500°C led to increase of particle size to about 5 nm. The Mössbauer spectroscopy investigations performed at room temperature show on occurrence of MnFe2O4 nanoparticle in superparamagnetic state for the

The sample annealed at 400°C and 500°C has bigger manganese ferrite particle and better crystallized structure. One can assign them the discrete hyperfine magnetic field components.
