In the centrosymmetric dinuclear title compound, [Tb2(C7H3F2O2)6(C10H8N2)2], the TbIII ion is coordinated by an N,N'-bidentate 2,2'-bipyridine molecule, and two O,O'-bidentate 2,4-difluorobenzoate (dfb) anions. One of the latter also bonds to the second TbIII centre through one of its O atoms. The third dfb anion bonds to one Tb atom from each of its O atoms. Thus, the three dfb species have three different coordination modes. This results in an irregular TbN2O7 coordination sphere for the metal ion. The F atoms and their associated H atoms in the simple bidentate dfb anion are disordered over two sets of sites in a 0.672 (10):0.328 (10) ratio.
