Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, (C9H8N)2[ZnCl4]·2H2O, consists of one quinolinium cation, one-half of the [ZnCl4]2- anion and one water molecule. The geometry around the Zn atom is approximately tetrahedral, with the Zn atom lying on a twofold axis. The water molecules hydrogen bond to the [ZnCl4]2- anions and the quinolinium cations, forming a two-dimensional network with the cations protruding on both sides of the network and stacking through - interactions with adjacent networks.
