Abstract: In the title compound, [ZnCl2(C6H6FN)2], the ZnII atom has a slightly distorted tetrahedral geometry, being coordinated by the N atoms of two 4-fluoroaniline molecules and the two Cl- anions. The two benzene rings are almost perpendicular to one another, making a dihedral angle of 89.96 (13)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked via pairs of N-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, forming chains propagating along the b axis. These chains are in turn linked via a second pair of N-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, forming a two-dimensional network parallel to the ab plane. The title compound crystallizes in the space group Pca21 and exhibits weak second harmonic generation (SHG) properties.
