The effect of particle reduction to nanoscale size and substitution of Mn3+ ions for Fe3+ ions on the crystal structure, lattice dynamics, Mossbauer spectra and magnetic properties in NdFe(1-x)MnxO(3) compounds have been studied. X-ray powder diffraction and Raman spectroscopy revealed that the Jahn-Teller distortion of lattice dominates for samples with x GT 0.4. The average particle size of NdFeO3 nanoparticles (NAP) increases with annealing at 600 degrees C from about 15 nm to 25 nm. The presence of superparamagnetic particles was indicated by Mossbauer measurements in NdFeO3 NAP system. Sextets in NdFe(1-x)MnxO(3) Mssbauer spectra can be modelled with several local environments of Fe3+ induced by substitution. The reduction of dimensionality and the substitution induce a decrease of the Neel temperature T-Nl from 691 K to 544 K for NAP or to 356 K for x = 0.4, however the temperature of spin reorientation T-SR increases with substitution. The saturated magnetization obtained at 1.9... K increases and ferromagnetic component is removed below T-SR with the substitution.
