The title Schiff base zinc(II) complex, [Zn(C13H10ClN2O)I(CH3OH)], was synthesized by the reaction of 5-chlorosalicylaldehyde, 2-aminomethylpyridine and zinc iodide in methanol. The ZnII atom is five-coordinated by one phenolate O atom, one imine and one pyridine N atom of the Schiff base ligand, one methanol O atom and one I atom, forming a distorted square-pyramidal geometry, with the I atom at the apical site. The dihedral angle between the benzene and pyridine rings is 22.9 (2)°. In the crystal, centrosymmetrically related molecules are linked through intermolecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming dimers
