The Tb atom of the title compound, TbHP2O7·4H2O, is coordinated by the O atoms of three symmetrically independent water mol-ecules and by five O atoms belonging to HP2O7 - groups. The TbO8 polyhedra are inter-connected by the diphospate anions, forming a three-dimensional network which is additionally stabilized by O - H⋯O hydrogen bonding between water mol-ecules and O atoms of the HP2O7 - anions. Uncoordinated water mol-ecules are situated in channels and are connected via hydrogen bonds with the framework.
