It is found from magnetic and 11B NMR studies of amorphous and crystalline NiB alloys that neither the bulk (conduction electron susceptibility), nor the local (Knight shift and spin-lattice relaxation time) electronic parameters are influenced appreciably by the lack of long-range order. Together with previous quadrupole NMR study on the same samples this supports the conclusion that the basic building units in amorphous NiB alloys are similar to trigonal prisms occuring in the crystalline Ni3B and Ni4B3 compounds.
