The electronic structure of Zn1-xMxO (M: 3d transition metal) was discussed. X-ray absorption spectroscopic technique was used for the purpose. The electronic structure parameters were deduced and their chemical trend was discussed by using configuration-interaction cluster-model analysis. It was found that the p-d exchange constant Nβ was negative and large in cases of Fe, Co and Mn.
