Despite the importance of sodium compounds for their application in sodium-ion rechargeable batteries, core-exciton interactions in sodium L2,3 edge core-electron loss spectra are not well-understood. In this study, Bethe-Salpeter equation calculations of sodium L2,3 edges of sodium compounds were performed to understand the relationships between the core-exciton interactions and the electronic structure of sodium compounds. It was revealed that the core-exciton interaction of sodium compounds is strongly dependent on the compounds. We found that neither band gap nor ionic charge can explain the trend; however, the transition energy shows a clear correlation to the magnitude of the core-exciton interaction. These results indicate that the magnitude of the core-exciton interaction is decided by the excited electronic structure of each compound.
