We present a joint experimental and theoretical study of the electronic structure of the chain compounds ACuO2 () using O-K and Cu-L3 X-ray absorption spectroscopy. The doping-dependent behaviour in these systems differs from that of conventional 2D Cu-O networks formed by corner-shared CuO4 plaquettes. It follows from the strongly weakened inter-plaquette hybridisation due to the nearly 90° Cu-O-Cu bond in the chains. Spectroscopically, this results in a) the different final states in the Cu-L3 spectra which can be used directly to “read-off” the Cu valency and b) a drastic reduction in the dynamic spectral weight transfer from the upper Hubbard band to the low-energy scale in the O-K spectra.
