Hello mzhu
I think that it is impossible to distinguish nitrogen with oxygen by using EXAFS. I would like to recommend XANES for your study.
The shift of pre-edge of XANES shows how the oxidation state of metal is changed.
As you know, If there are nitrogen atoms in substitute for oxygen atoms  around metal,  the pre-edge of metal xanes may shift to high energy because the oxidation state increases.

I want to figure out what elements are coordinated with the heavy metal in the first coordinate. Since the oxygen and nitrogen have similar scattering factors, how can I differetiate them? Using shell-by-shell fitting or linear combination fitting with standards?
