The structure of the title complex, [ZnCl2(C12H 18N2O2)], contains a zwitterionic Schiff base ligand. The complex adopts a distorted tetra-hedral coordination geometry around the metal centre with the Schiff base ligand coordinated in a bidentate fashion via the imine N and phenolate O atoms. In the crystal, inter-molecular N - H⋯O and C - H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds link the mol-ecules into chains parallel to the c-glide planes.
