The molecular structure of the title complex [ZnBr2(C7H6N2)(2)] was investigated by X-ray diffraction and IR spectroscopy methods. Molecules of zinc(II) complex crystallize in the triclinic crystal system with cell constants a = 7.526(2) Angstrom, b = 7.8971(8) Angstrom, c = 13.431(1) Angstrom, Z = 2 and V = 791.3(2) Angstrom(3). In the molecular structure, the Zn atom is coordinated tetrahedrally by two Br- anions and two benzimidazole ligands. Intramolecular steric repulsions between Br- anions and benzimidazole groups have been caused to cis configuration around the central metal atom. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
