Also to know is, is AlBr3 ionic or covalent?
CBr4 and AlBr3 are both not ionic compounds. AlBr3 might seem as though it should be one, but it has a low melting and boiling point and consists of Al2Br6 molecules, not ions. Fajans' rules can be used to estimate whether a compound will be ionic or covalent.
Beside above, is Aluminium bromide a solid? Aluminium bromide is any chemical compound with the empirical formula AlBrx. Aluminium tribromide is the most common form of aluminium bromide. It is a colorless, sublimable hygroscopic solid; hence old samples tend to be hydrated, mostly as aluminium tribromide hexahydrate (AlBr3·6H2O).
Also question is, is Aluminium oxide an ionic compound?
Aluminium oxide is an ionic compound, but aluminium chloride is only ionic in the solid state at low temperatures. At higher temperatures it becomes covalent.
What is aluminum bromide used for?
Aluminum Bromide is a highly water soluble crystalline Aluminum source for uses compatible with Bromides and lower (acidic) pH. Most metal bromide compounds are water soluble for uses in water treatment, chemical analysis and in ultra high purity for certain crystal growth applications.
