Abstract

The solvated title compound, [ZnCl2(C20H17BrN2)]·0.5CH2Cl2, comprises a bidentate imino­pyridine ligand and two Cl atoms bound to a zinc2+ cation in a distorted tetra­hedral arrangement. The chelate bond lengths are consistent with localized C=N double bonds and a C—C single bond, as expected for an unreduced ligand bound to a closed-shell transition metal cation. Apart from weak nonclassical C—HCl hydrogen bonds between the complex mol­ecules and the disordered solvent mol­ecules (occupancy = 0.5), no further significant inter­molecular inter­actions are observed.
