Influences of Samarium substitution in the Ferric Borate oxide materials were investigated on their crystal, electric and electronic properties. Studies were mainly carried on the change in the crystal structure with the increasing Sm substitutions with the collected data from the synchrotron facilities. All prepared samples were determined as semiconductors with weak antiferromagnetic (AFM) ordering at the room temperatures. The main technique for the investigations was the X-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy (XANES) and the collected data were used to probe in the electronic structure properties of the samples. Prominent changes and phase transitions in the crystal structure were observed according to the increasing Sm substitutions. Besides, iron atoms and their 3d levels were determined as the center of the interplays during the entire crystallographic phenomena..
