Abstract: The title compound,[FeCl2(C18H25N3O2)], has a distorted tetrahedral Cl2N2 coordination of the FeII atom as a result of the constraints imposed by the 2-[2,2-bis(4,4-dimethyl-4,5-dihydro-1,3-oxazol-2-yl)propyl]pyridine ligand. The pyridine ring is almost perpendicular to the six-membered chelated ring containing the metal atom [dihedral angle between their mean planes = 88.5 (1)°].
