Titanium(II) bromide is the inorganic compound with the formula TiBr2. It is a black micaceous solid. It adopts the cadmium iodide structure, featuring octahedral Ti(II) centers. It arises via the reaction of the elements:[1]

Ti + Br2 → TiBr2

The compound reacts with caesium bromide to give the linear chain compound CsTiBr3.[2]
