Properties[change | change source]
Zinc bromide is a colorless solid. It dissolves in water. It makes an acidic solution.
Preparation[change | change source]
It can be made by reacting barium bromide with zinc sulfate. This forms barium sulfate which can be filtered out. It can also be made by reacting zinc with bromine. It can also be made by reacting zinc with hydrogen bromide or hydrobromic acid.
