Raman spectra of FeO, Fe<sub>3</sub>O<sub>4</sub>, α-Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>, α-FeOOH, and γ-FeOOH, the common products of iron oxidation, have been measured. The spectra of FeO and Fe<sub>3</sub>O<sub>4</sub> appear to be identical. Armco iron oxidized in air at 250°C was examined by Raman spectroscopy after varying periods of exposure and the surface film was found to contain Fe<sub>3</sub>O<sub>4</sub> and α-Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>.
