The title compound, [Ag2(C14H8O4)(C5H6N2)2], is a dinuclear AgI complex which has crystallographic inversion symmetry. Each Ag atom is three-coordinated by two N atoms from two 2-aminopyridine ligands and by one O atom from a biphenyl-4,4′-dicarboxylate ligand, giving a Y-shaped coordination environment. Two AgI atoms are linked through a biphenyl-4,4′-dicarboxylate ligand, acting as a bridge, forming a dimeric complex. The separation between the two silver(I) centres is 15.879 (3) Å. In the crystal structure, molecules are connected by N—H…O hydrogen bonds, forming molecular tapes in the a-axis direction.
