The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [ZnCl2(C11H17N3)], contains two independent pentacoordinate Zn-II complex molecules. In each molecule, the metal atom is coordinated by an N,N ',N ''-tridenate Schiff base and two Cl atoms in a distorted square-pyramidal geometry. The two molecules differ little in their geometry, but more in their intermolecular interactions. In the crystal, adjacent molecules are connected via C-H center dot center dot center dot Cl interactions into a three-dimensional supramolecular structure. The network is supplemented by pi-pi interactions formed between the aromatic rings of pairs of the symmetry-related molecules [centroid-centroid distances = 3.6255 (10) and 3.7073 (10) angstrom]. The crystal lattice contains void spaces with a size of 52 angstrom(3).
