Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) was used to study the complete absence of an X-point band gap for trivalent LaB6and a partial absence of the band gap for mixed valent SmB6. A X-point band gap was found in divalent hexaborides. The two findings imply a nontrivial evolution of the band structure from divalent to trivalent hexaborides.
