Abstract

We performed the high frequency radio studies of spiral galaxies using the 100 m MPIfR radio telescope at 10.55 GHz. Two objects: NGC 4254 and NGC 3627 possess perturbed spiral structures while two others, NGC 3521 and NGC 5055 are flocculent objects, lacking organized spiral patterns. NGC 3521 possesses also a peculiar dust lane. For NGC 4254, NGC 3627 and NGC 5055 deep polarization maps were made, for NGC 3521 the total power data only were analyzed (see Urbanik et al. 1989).
