Ways to obtain Fe2O3–SiO2 iron-containing silica composites with organized mesoporous structure (MCM-41) and large specific surface area (up to 1476 m2 g–1) were considered. The influence exerted by the method used to synthesize the materials on their structure, texture characteristics, particle size, and magnetic properties were studied. The aggregative stability of samples was examined. It was shown that treatment of the resulting composites with compounds from the chlorosilane group affects their hydrophobic properties.
