      Abstract:

      In the title compound, [ZnCl2(C13H19N3O)], the Schiff base
      ligand acts as an N,N0,N00-tridentate chelating agent, making
      two five-membered rings with the ZnII ion. The metal atom is
      five-coordinated by the Schiff base ligand and two Cl atoms   in
      a distorted square-pyramidal geometry. An intramolecular
      C—H Cl interaction occurs. In the crystal, adjacent molecules
      are linked together via C—H Cl hydrogen-bonding
      and long range C—H O and C—H Cl interactions into a
      three-dimensional network.
