The important use of x-ray powder diffraction as a tool in the identification of unknown crystalline materials is dependent on the proper standards being in the reference file. Such new standards are added yearly to the Powder Diffraction File. The main purpose of this paper is to present new data on several well characterized salts based primarily on hafnium both in the hydrated and anhydrated form.
