A novel ligand complex of Zn(II) with nicotinamide (one form of niacine) and two bromine ions were synthesised and characterised on the basis of elemental analysis, FT-IR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. Crystal system is monoclinic, space group C2/c (no: 15), cell parameters are a = 13.3535(9) Angstrom, b = 6.3859(7) Angstrom, c = 19.1940(19) Angstrom, beta = 101.75(3)degrees, V = 1602.5(3) Angstrom(3) and Z = 4. It has been proven that the nicotinamide ligands in the structure of the Zn(H) complex are coordinated to the metal ion with N atoms ([ZnBr2(na)(2)] where na: nicotinamide).
