The vanadium Kbeta/Kalphaintensity ratios of some simple vanadium compounds, VO, V2O3, VO2, V6O13, V2O5, VN and VC have been measured by using a Si(Li) X-ray spectrometer. Strong covalent compounds in general have large vanadium Kbeta/Kalphaintensity ratios which can be attributed to the non-diagram lines due to the band mixing between the metal and the ligands. For relatively weak covalent compounds the contribution from the change of the diagram line may have to be included.
