The crystal structure of the title compound, [ZnCl2(C7H10N2S)2], shows a discrete molecular structure with tetrahedral geometry around the zinc ion. The mean Zn-Cl and Zn-S distances are 2.259 (4) and 2.372 (4) Å, respectively. Bond angles around the zinc ion range from 102.8 (1) to 113.7 (1)°. Ring distances and angles in the ligand compare favorably with literature values of analogous compounds, and the mean C-S bond distance of 1.71 (1) Å is close to the average distance of 1.72 Å observed for several dialkylimidazolethione complexes of main group and transition metal halides.
