Abstract: The title compound, [ZnCl2(C21H15N3)], was obtained from the reaction of ZnCl2·4H2O with 4'-phenylterpyridine (L) and disodium 2,6-dipicolinate. The Zn2+ cation is ligated by the N atoms of the tridentate L ligand and two chloride anions, forming a ZnN3Cl2 polyhedron with a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal coordination geometry. In the crystal, nonclassical C-HCl hydrogen bonds are observed.
