We calculate hyperfine structure intervals for P–states in muonic ions of lithium, beryllium and boron. To construct the particle interaction operator in momentum space we use the tensor method ofprojection operators on states with definite quantum numbers of total atomic momentum F and total muonmomentum j. We take into account vacuum polarization, relativistic, quadruple and structure corrections of orders α4, α5 and α6. The obtained numerical values of hyperfine splittings can be used for a comparison with future experimental data.
