Characterization of sodium, samarium and europium beta´´-alumina derivatives has been carried out using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Beta´´-alumina has been widely studied as a material capable of incorporating many different cations into its lattice structure, such as sodium and many of the lanthanide elements. The X-ray photoelectron spectra of samarium and europium in the beta´´-alumina structure are reported here. Additionally, the spectra of the precursor sodium beta´´-alumina as well as the europium and samarium trichloride starting materials are presented.
