A new Zn(II) complex with the monodentate ligand methyl-(2-pyridin-2-yl-ethyl)-ammonium, ZnCl3C8H13N2, has been prepared and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The Zn(II) ion is tetracoordinated by one nitrogen atom of organic ligand and three chlorine ligands. In the atomic arrangement, the ZnNCl3 tetrahedra form corrugated chains extending along the b-axis. The organic entities are located between these chains through N-H···Cl, C-H···Cl and C-H···N hydrogen bonds to form layers parallel to (b, c) plan. Among these hydrogen bonds two are bifurcated.
