    Summary
    In this work our previous study about chemical effects in the Kα spectra of S compounds employing high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy has been extended to the Kβ emission spectra. The measurements were performed with a wavelength dispersive single crystal spectrometer operated in the von Hamos geometry having an energy resolution comparable to the natural linewidth of the measured Kβ X-ray lines. The target fluorescence was produced by irradiating the samples with the bremsstrahlung from an X-ray tube. The energies and widths of the main components in the Kβ emission spectrum are given for different sulfur compounds (sulfide, sulfite, sulfate). The measured energy shifts between the Kβ lines of the compounds and elemental sulfur are presented as a function of the sulfur oxidation state and compared with the results obtained from the former Kα measurements.
