The title compound, [Zn(C15H13N2O)Cl(C15H14N2O)], has a mononuclear structure, in which the central zinc ion is coordinated by two benzimidazole N atoms, one phenolate O atom and a chloride ion in a distorted tetrahedral arrangement. In the crystal structure, there are intramolecular – stacking interactions between the phenol and benzimidazole ring systems; intermolecular – stacking interactions between the benzimidazole ring systems of adjacent molecules are also present. A strong intermolecular O—H…O hydrogen bond is also observed.
