We comment on the crystal structure of an enanantipure chiral zinc complex which has been described by Ivanova & Spiteller (2022) erroneously in a centrosymmetric space group with the metal on an inversion center. Subsequent information about thermal motion, octahedral distortion and charge density in their article is highly flawed.
