In the structure of title compound [ZnI2(C12H10N2O2)2] from the reaction of 4-(4-nitrobenzyl)pyridine with zinc(II) iodide, the asymmetric unit contains two independent discrete distorted tetrahedral complex units [Zn-I range, 2.5472(8)-2.5666(7)A; Zn-N range, 2.044(4)-2.052(4)A], which are essentially identical conformationally and exist in the crystal structure as a racemic twin.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
