The title compound, NH4YbP2O7, crystallizes in the KAlP2O7 structure type and consists of distorted YbO6 octa-hedra and bent P2O7 4- diphosphate units forming together a three-dimensional network. There are channels in the structure running along the c axis, where the NH4 + cations are located. They are connected via N - H⋯O hydrogen bonds to the terminal O atoms of the diphosphate anions.
