Members of the R//2Fe//3Si//5 series become either superconducting or magnetically ordered depending on whether the metal atom R( equals rare earth, Y or Sc) is diamagnetic or paramagnetic, respectively. Moessbauer effect and magnetization measurements have been made to determine the magnetic state of the iron and the nature of the superconducting electrons. Results are reported in detail for Dy//2Fe//3Si//5. The nature of the superconducting electrons in the R//2Fe//3Si//5 series is discussed in the light of available measurements.
