L2,3-edge x-ray-absorption-spectroscopy studies of the white-line feature are used to probe the electronic structure of 4d transition-metal (T) -based materials. Results of such probes of the elements Mo to Ag are reviewed. Results of a number of binary Pd-B and ternary Rh-B compounds are interpreted in terms of the loss of d states just above EF and the formation of hybridized T-4d/B antibonding states split well above Ef.
