In the title complex, {[Tb(C2O4)1.5(H2O)3]·CH3OH}n, each TbIII atom is coordinated by six O atoms from three oxalate ligands and three water molecules, and displays a tricapped–trigonal prismatic geometry. The oxalate groups link the metal ions, forming layers perpendicular to the c axis that can be described via topological analysis as a three-connected (63) sheet. O—H...O hydrogen bonds from the water and methanol molecules to the oxalate ions further interconnect the layers, forming a supramolecular network.
