# What is the structure of barium bromide in aqueous solution?

Solution behaviour of $\text{barium bromide...........?}$. Well, three solvated ions would result......
So how does $B a B {r}_{2}$ speciate in water:
BaBr_2(s)stackrelcolor(blue)("water"color(white)(X))(→)Ba^(2+) + 2Br^(-)
Now in solution, we CONCEIVE that both ions are the aquated species, i.e. ${\left[B a {\left\{{\left(O H\right)}_{2}\right\}}_{6}\right]}^{2 +}$, a barium dication solvated by, $\text{aquated}$ by six (or so) water ligands. Other solvents exist, and the solution behaviour of the salt would be particular.
