A possible explanation is given of the chemical shifts of x-ray K-absorption edges of metals when they undergo a chemical combination and form compounds. It is proposed that when a metal forms a compound its Fermi edge changes. It explains the numerical order as well as the nature of the chemical shifts. A fairly good agreement between the calculated and observed values has been obtained.
