Bis[[mu]-1,3-bis­(1H-imidazol-1-yl)propane-[kappa]2N3:N3']bis­(di­chlorido­zinc) dihydrate

Abstract: The title hydrated complex, [Zn2Cl4(C9H12N4)2]·2H2O, is a discrete dinuclear zinc complex with 1,3-bis­(1H-imidazol-1-yl)propane as the bridging ligand. The complex mol­ecule lies about a crystallographic inversion centre. The ZnII atom exhibits a distorted tetra­hedral coordination geometry defined by two imidazole N atoms and two Cl atoms. O-H...Cl hydrogen bonding between the lattice water mol­ecules and the terminal Cl atoms of the mol­ecule lead to a two-dimensional structure extending parallel to (100).
