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.
