Zirconyl chloride is also known as Dichlorooxozirconium, Zirconium Oxychloride and Basic Zirconium Chloride.
It is conveniently prepared by crystallization of an aqueous solution of
Octahydrate, tetragonal crystals from water. Crystals contain
tetramersof the form [Zr4(OH)8(H2O)16] 8+
Used to make other Zirconium compounds, to precipitate
