The title compd. is monoclinic, space group P21/n, with a 14.0082(8), b 10.803(1), c 14.581(1) Å, and β 116.625(8)°; Z = 4, dc = 1.50; R = 0.043,Rw = 0.044 for 1935 reflections. The crystal structure shows a discrete mol. structure with tetrahedral geometry around the Zn ion. The mean Zn-Cl and Zn-S distances are 2.259(7) and 2.372(4) Å, resp. Bond angles around the Zn ion range from 102.8(1) to 113.7(1)°. Ring distances and angles in the ligand compare favorably with literature values of analogous compds., and the mean C-S bond distance of 1.71(1) Å is close to the av. distance of 1.72 Å obsd. for several dialkylimidazolethione complexes of main group and transition metal halides.
