Abstract: The structure of the title salt, (C5H6BrN2)[ZnCl3(C5H5BrN2)], consists of discrete 2-amino-5-bromopyridin-1-ium cations and distorted tetrahedral (2-amino-5-bromopyridine)trichloridozincate anions. In the crystal, the complex anions and cations are linked via N-HCl hydrogen bonds into layers parallel to (101). Short BrCl contacts of 3.4239 (11) and 3.4503 (12) Å are observed, as well as - stacking interactions between the pyridine and pyridinium rings, with alternating centroid-to-centroid distances of 3.653 (2) and 3.845 (2) Å.
