The L spectra of vanadium and the Kα band of carbon in the homogeneity ranges of the vanadium carbides V2C and VC have been measured on an RSM-500 ultralong-wave spectrometer. The results are compared with previously obtained emission and absorption K spectra of vanadium in carbides, and the results of quantum-mechanical calculations on isomorphous titanium carbides are included. The existence of a three-band energy structure of the valence band is shown, reflecting the metallic-covalent-ionic nature of the chemical bond in the carbides. Conclusions are drawn regarding the direction of charge transfer, and an energy diagram is proposed for VC0.688.
