Chloride complexation of the group-4 elements Zr and Hf in 8.0-11.9 M HCl is investigated by Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy to characterize chloro complexes of the transactinide element, rutherfordium (Rf). The complexes of Zr and Hf successively vary with the concentration of HCl from a hydrated complex [M(H$$_{2}$$O) $$_{8}$$]$$^{4+}$$ at 8.0 M to a hexachloro complex [MCl$$_{6}$$]$$^{2-}$$ at 11.9 M (M = Zr and Hf). The present structural changes of the Zr and Hf complexes well reflect the previously studied anion-exchange behavior of Zr and Hf in HCl. From both the EXAFS and anion-exchange results, we suggest that Rf forms the same complexes as those of Zr and Hf in HCl, and that the complexation strength of the hexachloro complexes of the group-4 elements, [MCl$$_{6}$$] $$^{2-}$$ (M = Zr, Hf, and Rf), is in the sequence of Rf $$>$$ Zr $$>$$ Hf.
