Abstract: In the molecule of the title compound, [HgBr2(C14H12N2)], the HgII atom is four-coordinated in a distorted tetrahedral configuration by two N atoms from a 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline ligand and by two Br atoms. In the crystal structure, weak intermolecular C-HBr hydrogen bonds link the molecules into chains along the b axis. There are - contacts between the phenanthroline rings [centroid-centroid distances = 3.806 (4), 3.819 (4), 3.739 (3), 3.690 (3), 3.619 (4) and 3.674 (3) Å].
