In the mononuclear title compound, [ZnCl2(C14H13NO)(2)], the Zn-II ion is located on a twofold axis of the monoclinic space group so that the whole molecule has a twofold symmetry. The Zn-II ion has a tetrahedral coordination consisting of two chlorine ions and the O atoms of the ligands. The coordination angles around zinc have values between 102.89 (8) (O-Zn-O) and 115.83 (5)degrees (Cl-Zn-O). The Zn-O and Zn-Cl bond lengths are 1.977 (2) and 2.2401 (7) Angstrom, respectively. There are intra- and intermolecular hydrogen bonds in the structure.
