An attempt to impose tetrahedral geometry on zinc(II) through use of bis(salicylideneamino)biphenyl pro-ligands has produced hydrolytically sensitive complexes. The single-crystal structures of [ZnL(EtOH)] [H(2)L = 6,6'-dimethyl-2,2'-bis(salicylideneamino)biphenyl][monoclinic, space group P2(1)/c, a = 11.654(2), b = 11.753(2), c = 18.878(3) Angstrom, beta = 98.97(2)degrees, Z = 4] and its pro-ligand H(2)L [monoclinic, space group I2/c, a = 13.911(2), b = 13.759(2), c = 12.015(2) Angstrom, beta = 94.836(10)degrees, Z = 4] have been determined. The co-ordination geometry at zinc is slightly distorted trigonal bipyramidal.
