The valence band electronic structures of mixed uranium oxides (UO2, U4O9, U3O7, U3O8, and β-UO3) have been studied using the resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) technique at the U M5 edge and computational methods. We show here that the RIXS technique and recorded U 5f-O 2p charge transfer excitations can be used to test the validity of theoretical approximations.
