Bismuth tribromide is an inorganic compound of bismuth and bromine with the chemical formula BiBr3. It may be formed by the reaction of bismuth oxide and hydrobromic acid:

Bi2O3 + 6 HBr ⇌ 2 BiBr3 + 3 H2O

Bismuth tribromide can also be produced by the direct oxidation of bismuth in bromine.

Bismuth bromide is highly water-soluble.
