Available literature data on the magnetic susceptibility of NiB are critically considered and it is concluded that this alloy is slightly diamagnetic. Applying diamagnetic corrections, the Pauli susceptibility and, from this, the electronic density of states at the Fermi level is deduced for NiB. This result is discussed in comparison with the density of states of related Ni-metalloid alloys.
