The crystal structure of the title iodoantimonate complex, 4,4′-bipyridinium(2+) di-μ-iodo-bis[(4,4′-bipyridyl)triiodoantimony(III)], formulated as [4,4′-H2bipy]2+[Sb2I8(4,4′-bipy)2]2− or (C10H10N2)[Sb2I8(C10H8N2)2], contains layers of hydrogen-bonded ribbon polymers in which anionic dimetal complexes are linked through hydrogen bonding with 4,4′-H2bipy cations. The complex is isostructural with its bismuth analogue.
