The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Ru(C10H8N2)2(C30H20N2)](PF6)2, contains a monomeric [Ru(bpy)2(dtephen)] cation {bpy is 2,2′-bipyridine and dtephen is 3,8-bis[2-(4-tolyl)ethynyl]-1,10-phenanthroline} and two hexafluorophosphate anions. The ruthenium(II) ion is in a distorted octahedral environment coordinated by two bpy ligands and one dtephen ligand. The dtephen ligand is almost planar. π–π stacking interactions and C—H...F hydrogen bonds are observed in the crystal structure.
