Abstract: In the zwitterionic zinc title complex, [ZnCl2(C14H20N2O2)], the ZnII ion is four-coordinated in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The Schiff base ligand employs its phenolate O and imine N atoms to coordinate the metal atom in a bidentate mode. Two Cl atoms complete the tetrahedral coordination environment. In the crystal, a pair of N-HO hydrogen bonds connect the molecules into a centrosymmetric dimer. C-HO, C-HCl and C-H interactions are also observed.
