Infobox disclaimer and references

Beryllium chloride is the chemical compound with the formula BeCl2. It is 1-dimensional polymer consisting of edge-shared tetrahedra.[1] In contrast BeF2 is a 3-dimensional polymer, with a structure akin to quartz.

BeCl2 can be prepared by treating Be metal with hydrogen chloride:

Be + 2 HCl → BeCl2 + H2

It hydrolyses upon contact with water to give the aquo complex, [Be(H2O)4]Cl2.[2]
