The sodium intercalation of mixed - valence iron phosphate Fe32+Fe43+(PO4)(6) results in drastic transformation of its physical properties. The parent compound Fe-7(PO4)(6) reaches magnetically ordered state through succession of phase transitions at T-N1 = 45.5 K and T-N2 = 16 K marked by sharp singularities in both specific heat C-p and magnetic susceptibility chi. The introduction of sodium suppresses the formation of antiferromagnetic state down to T-N = 33 K in Na0.65Fe7(PO4)(6). The low temperature phase transition in this compound smears being substituted by broad anomalies in magnetization and specific heat related to the spin/charge disorder effects. The sharp well resolved electron spin resonance spectra in parent material transform into asymmetric broad line in sodium - intercalated substance. The dielectric permittivity epsilon of Fe-7(PO4)(6) demonstrates a kink at T-N2, while no singularity marks T-N1. No features accompany magnetic phase transition in dielectric property of Na0.65Fe7(PO4)(6) but epsilon reaches the relaxation maxima at high temperatures which can be attributed to the freezing of sodium ions.
