The crystal structure of the title compound, [MnCl-(C28H 22N2O2)(C2H6O)], has been determined at 173 (2) K in the non-centrosymmetric space group P2 12121. The asymmetric unit contains two molecular units. An intermolecular O-H⋯Cl hydrogen bond is formed between the OH group of an ethanol molecule coordinated to the Mn atom and the coordinated Cl- anion, and so polymeric chains of Mn-containing fragments are formed [O-H⋯Cl = 3.1281 (16) and 3.1282 (15) Å]. The Mn atoms have a pseudo-octahedral coordination sphere, with the four donor atoms of the Schiff base forming an equatorial plane [Mn-O distances are 1.8740 (13), 1.8717 (13), 1.8749 (13) and 1.8823 (13) Å, and Mn-N distances are 1.9868 (15), 1.9910 (14), 1.9828 (15) and 1.9979 (14) Å]. The axial positions are occupied by an ethanol molecule [Mn-O distances of 2.3069 (15) and 2.3130 (15) Å] and a Cl- ligand [Mn-Cl distances of 2.5732 (6) and 2.5509 (6) Å].
