In the title compound, [Zn(C11H9N6)2]n, the ZnII atom lies on an inversion center and is coordinated by four N atoms from four 5-[4-(1H-imidazol-1-ylmethyl)phenyl]tetrazolate ligands in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The ligands bridge the ZnII atoms, leading to the formation of a two-dimensional network parallel to (010). The structure is further stabilized by C-H...N, C-H...[pi] and [pi]-[pi] [centroid-centroid distance = 3.7523 (11) Å] interactions within the network.
