Abstract: The monomeric title complex, [Zn(C14H12NOS)2]·2CHCl3 or L2Zn·2CHCl3, where L is the 2-({[2-(methylsulfanyl)phenyl]imino}methyl)phenolate anion, may be obtained by the reaction of LZnEt with benzyl alcohol or by the reaction of two equivalents of LH with ZnEt2 in tetrahydrofuran. The Zn atom, located on a twofold axis, is four-coordinated in a distorted tetrahedral geometry by two O atoms [Zn-O = 1.9472 (19) Å] from the phenolate anions and two imine N atoms [Zn-N = 2.054 (2) Å].
