A novel zinc complex with the formula [Zn(hfac)2(L1)]n (1) (L1 = bis(4-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)phenyl)methanone) is synthesized and structurally characterized by IR, elemental analyses, and the single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The zinc(II) ions of 1 are in a distorted octahedral environment with four O atoms of the hfac ligands and two N atoms from two L1 ligands. Each L1 acts as a bridging ligand to link two Zn(II) atoms to form a helical chain.
