Dichlorido{(E)-4-dimethylamino-N'-[(pyridin-2-yl)methylidene-[kappa]N]benzohydrazide-[kappa]O}zinc

Abstract: In the mononuclear title complex, [ZnCl2(C15H16N4O)], the ZnII cation is five-coordinated in a strongly distorted square-pyramidal environment by two Cl- anions and a neutral tridentate Schiff base ligand. The ZnII cation is chelated by the carbonyl O atom, the imine N atom and the pyridine N atom, which causes a slight loss of planarity for the ligand; the dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 4.61 (8)°.
