Abstract: The crystal structure of the title compound, [Zn2(C16H14N2O2)2], shows the dimeric complex to be centrosymmetric. Distorted pentacoordinate square-pyramidal geometry is formed around ZnII, defined by two N atoms and two O atoms of the N,N'-bis(salicylidene)-1,2-ethylenediamine (salen) ligand and one bridging O atom of the adjacent ligand. Two salen ligands in this dimeric complex are twisted in opposite directions to each other.
