Abstract: In the title complex, [Zn(C18H10N4O2)(CH4O)], the Zn2+ cation is located on a mirror plane and is coordinated by a tetradentate Schiff base ligand anion (L2-) and a methanol molecule. The Zn2+ cation is surrounded by two N atoms and two O atoms from L2-, in a nearly planar configuration, and one methanol O atom, forming a slightly distorted square-pyramidal geometry. The methanol molecule is disordered over two sets of sites in a 0.5:0.5 ratio. In the crystal, O-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into chains parallel to .
