In this research, the 2-((2-(2-hydroxyethylamino) ethylimino) methyl) phenol (H2L) has been prepared with high yield via condensation of salicylaldehyde and 2-hydroxyethelamine. Crystal structure of H2L is determined at 130K. In the crystal structure of H2L, it is observed that there are two independent H­2L-units. X-ray crystal structural analysis revealed that the H2L belonged to the orthorhombic space group of P212121 with cell parameters; a = 7.0205(5), b = 14.1909(9), c = 21.7147(14) A and β=90.00°.


Key words: Crystal structure, imine Schiff bases, high yield.
