Although diisopropylzinc has attracted considerable interest as a useful organometallic reagent over the past ten years, diisopropylzinc complexes are still absent in the present version of the Cambridge Structural Database. In the title compound, a tmeda (tmeda is N, N, N', N'-tetramethylethylenediamine) adduct, [Zn(C3H7)(2)(C6H16N2)], the Zn II atom, which lies on a crystallographic twofold rotation axis, is in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The molecules are held together by dispersion forces, without any contacts within the sum of the van der Waals radii.
