The possibility to obtain novel data by standard electron spectroscopy and quantum chemical techniques is exemplified by C2FBr0.15 intercalate and silver foil. The features of extended X-ray photoelectron spectra are interpreted by electronic transitions in the valence band of similar unit cells. The analysis of experimental and calculated spectra reveals two states of intercalated Br2: molecular and chain-like. The interaction of Ag with NO2 at 300–520 K is limited by the formation of an oxidized state in the near-surface layer with a thickness of ∼6 A, with the metallic state of silver dominating in the Ag3d И Ag MNN spectra. Geometric parameters, states of atoms, and the character of bonds between them are consistent with the previously obtained results.
