The crystal structure of the Zn(II) complex with 2-(2-imidazolinyl)phenolate was determined by X-ray crystallography. The title compound was synthesized by reacting ZnCl2 and 2-(2-imidazolinyl)phenolate in methanol. The compound crystallized in the monoclinic space group P21/n and Z = 4 with cell parameters a = 12.0318(15)Å, b = 7.6706(10)Å, c = 18.617(2)Å, β = 105.089(2)°, V = 1658.9(14)Å3. The R1 [I > 2σ(I)] and wR2 (all data) values are 0.0454 and 0.1096, respectively, for all 4047 independent reflections. The title compound was found to take a pseudo-tetrahedral coordination geometry in the bis-bidentate fashion. In the crystal, a 1D chain structure was formed by intermolecular hydrogen-bonds between the coordinating phenolate–O atom and a noncoordinating N–H bond.
