The title compound, [Zn(CH3CO2)Cl(C14H14N4)]n, is a one-dimensional coordination polymer in which the ZnII ion is tetrahedrally coordinated by two N atoms of a bridging 1,1'-[1,4-phenylenebis(methylene)]di-1H-imidazole ligand, an acetate O atom and a Cl atom. The Cl atom, two acetate O atoms and two acetate C atoms are located on a mirror plane. The coordination of the diimidazole ligand to the ZnII ion gives an infinite one-dimensional zigzag structure along the b-axis direction with the charge balanced by the chloride and acetate ions.
