Zirconium(IV) bromide is the chemical compound with the formula ZrBr4. This colorless solid is the principal precursor to other Zr-Br compounds. It is prepared by the action of bromine on Zr powder and purified by sublimation.
In the gas phase, ZrBr4 is tetrahedral.
Like related tetrahalides of Ti and Hf, ZrBr4 hydrolyzes in air to give oxy-halides, with release of hydrogen bromide
