Abstract: In the neutral title complex, [HgCl2(C12H11NO3)], the HgII ion is pentacoordinated by two Cl atoms, one N atom and two weakly coordinating O atoms from the methyl 2-(quinolin-8-yloxy)acetate ligand. The coordination around the HgII ion may be described as highly distorted trigonal-bipyramidal. Centrosymmetric dimers are formed by an additional weak HgCl interaction, leading to a distorted octahedral coordination geometry around the HgII ion.
