Magnetic optical rotatory dispersion (MORD) of thin selected biological tissues and thin film of composite made from akaganeite mineral and PVA as well as ferritin and their mimetics aqueous suspensions were performed in spectral range 250-650 nm at room temperature. Good correlation between MORD spectra for akaganeite composite film, ferritin and their mimetics aqueous suspensions with spectra of thin slices of human tissue obtained from white matter of the brain and spleen were observed. Comparison suggest a contribution from Fe(III) to MORD spectra of tissues. This preliminary results show that application of MORD spectroscopy to clinical analysis may be useful.
