The structure of {Zn[S2CN(C3H5)2]2}2 was solved by X-ray structural analysis. The heavy atom method was used in interpretation of the structure. The dimeric compound crystallizes in the triclinic system with a space group of P1 and lattice parameters of a = 0.8218(2), b = 0.9462(6), c = 1.2942(9) nm, α = 77.70(5), β = 77.46(4), γ = 78.25(4)°. The experimentally determined density value for Z = 2 is 1.42 Mg m-3 and the calculated value is 1.44 Mg m-3. In the dimeric molecule each Zn atom is coordinated by five sulfur atoms at distances of Zn-S1 0.2346, Zn-S2 0.2339, Zn-S3 0.2468, Zn-S4 0.2846, Zn-S'4 0.2387 nm in a deformed trigonal bipyramid. The coordination number of Zn can be expressed as 3 + 1 + 1. The distance between two zinc atoms is 0.3580 nm.
