      Abstract:

      The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Zn(NCS)2-
      (C13H19N3O)], contains two crystallographically independent
      molecules. In each molecule, the ZnII ion is five-coordinated
      by the N,N0,N"-tridentate Schiff base and the N atoms of two
      thiocyanate ligands in a distorted square-pyramidal geometry.
      The two molecules differ mainly in the deviations from the
      ideal geometry, with values of 0.14 and 0.33. In the crystal,
      intermolecular C—H S hydrogen bonds are observed. An
      intramolecular C—H N hydrogen bond occurs in one of the
      independent molecules.
