The results of a Compton profile study on polycrystallineα-Mn are reported. Our measurement are compared with theoretical results computed for different 3d-4s electron configurations within the RFA model. Best agreement between the measured and calculated values is found for 3d5·44s1·6 configuration. Theoretical Compton profile ofγ-Mn calculated using the same procedure is close to that for bcc phase with similar electron configurations.
