In the title complex, [MnCl2(C13H13N3)]·H2O, the MnII atom is in a distorted square-pyramidal environment, with an Addison [tau] parameter of 0.037. The coordination geometry is defined by three N-atom donors from the tridentate 2-(pyridin-2-yl)-N-(pyridin-2-ylmethylidene)ethanamine ligand and two terminal Cl atoms. Although the H atoms of the lattice water molecule were not located, O...O distances of 3.103 (7) Å and O...Cl distances of 3.240 (3) and 3.482 (4) Å suggest that hydrogen bonding is responsible for the stabilization of the crystal packing.
