The title compound, [ZnCl2(C13H11N3)]center dot C3H7NO, crystallized in the monoclinic crystal system in space group P2(1)/n. The asymmetric unit contains one neutral complex molecule, which consists of a zinc ion, a bidentate ligand, and two chlorido ligands with dimethylformamide monosolvate. The ligand has two moieties, a benzimidazole and an aniline group. The benzimidazole and aniline planes are not coplanar, subtending a dihedral angle of 18.24 (8)degrees. The Zn(II) ion shows distorted tetrahedral geometry, being coordinated by an imidazole N atom, the aniline N atom, and two chlorido ligands. The packing features N-H center dot center dot center dot O, N-H center dot center dot center dot Cl, C-H center dot center dot center dot Cl hydrogen bonding.
