Abstract: In the title complex, [ZnCl2(C13H17N3)], the coordination sphere of the zinc cation is distorted square pyramidal. The three N atoms of the N,N',N''-tridentate 8-[2-(di­methyl­amino)­ethyl­amino]­quinoline ligand and one chloride ion constitute a considerably distorted square base. The apical site is occupied by another chloride ion. The distortion from the ideal square-pyramidal geometry is manifested by the N-Zn-N angle of 133.25 (11)°. Like most square-pyramidal metal complexes, the zinc cation is displaced towards the apical chloride ion. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by N-H...Cl inter­actions. This leads to the formation of chains of mol­ecules parallel to the b-axis direction.
