The structure of compound has also been examined crystallographically. It crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P 21/c. The title compound has been synthesized from the reaction of 4-ethyl-N-((pyridin-2-yl) methylene) benzeneamine with ZnBr2 metal salt. It has been characterized by using elemental analysis, MS, IR and UV-Visible spectroscopic techniques.
