Siegfried, A., McAbee, B., Zotov, V., McMillen, C., Hanks, T. "Dichlorido(2,20′-methylenedipyridine)zinc(II)" IUCrData, 2019, 4, x190131.
The title complex, [ZnCl2(C11H10N2)], crystallizes in the P21/c space group with di-2-pyridylmethane acting as a bidentate ligand coordinating the zinc atom in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The asymmetric unit consists of a single molecule of the title complex. The title complex folds with an angle of 53.82 (5)° between the planes of the two pyridine rings. The crystal packing is stabilized by hydrogen bonds and π–π interactions involving both pyridine rings.
