Abstract: The ZnII center in the dicationic complex of the title compound, [Zn(C10H7N3S)3](NO3)2·0.5C2H5OH·H2O, is in a distorted octahedral environment with imperfect noncrystallographic C3 symmetry. Each 2-(1,3-thiazol-2-yl)-1H-benzimidazole ligand coordinates in a bidentate manner, with the Zn-N(imidazole) bond lengths approximately 0.14 Å shorter than the Zn-N(thiazole) bond lengths. Charge-assisted hydrogen bonds connect cations, anions and water molecules. A lattice void is occupied by an ethanol solvent molecule disordered about a crystallographic inversion center and -stacking is observed between one type of symmetry-related benzene rings.
