Momentum dependence of charge excitations across the effective Mott gap in several quasi-low-dimensional model cuprates with different effective dimensionalities is studied using high resolution inelastic X-ray scattering by working near Copper k-edge resonance which allows us to extract the dispersion relations of the particle-hole pair excitations at the gap edge. Besides electron-electron correlation, momentum dependence of the gap-excitations is found to be strongly dependent on the effective dimensionality (or topology) of the 3d(x2-y2) network.
