The differential spectrum of the conversion electrons of uranium 235 trioxide (1 /2+) isomer and the x-ray electron spectrum of y-U03 in the 0 to 40-еV range of electron binding energy were measured. An experimental proof of appreciable hybridization with respect to the deep 2s orbits of oxygen and fluorine with bp orbits of the uranium atom in the solid-phase compounds у-\50ъ and UF4, respectively, was obtained.
