The phase distribution of high aspect ratio, Fe-filled carbon nanotubes prepared by pyrolyzing a mixture of powered ferrocene and C_(60) has been determined by means of Mössbauer spectroscopy. Our results for that characterization are closely related to the observation, after field cooling processes, of a hysteresis loop shift and clearly suggest a spatial phase distribution which includes the presence of a g-Fe/α-Fe interface. The temperature ependence of the hysteresis loop shift is discussed in terms of localized regions at that interface exhibiting uncompensated antiferromagnetism within reduced dimensions.
