Abstract
[ZnCl2(3,4,5-trichloropyridine)2] features short intermolecular Cl***Cl contacts between halogen atoms of different nature, and a charge density study provides experimental evidence for the accepted model of the halogen bonds: an arene-bonded Cl atom acts as a donor of electron density towards the “sigma hole” of a chlorido ligand attached to a neighbouring Zn(II) cation.
