Abstract: Let G be a connected linear algebraic group over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero. Then the Brauer group of G is shown to be $ C \times {({\mathbf{Q}}/Z)^{(n)}}$ where C is finite and $ n = d(d - 1)/2$, with d the Z-rank of the character group of G. In particular, a linear torus of dimension d has Brauer group $ {({\mathbf{Q}}/Z)^{(n)}}$ with n as above.
