In this review we describe recent advances in transition metal oxyhydride chemistry obtained by topochemical routes, such as low temperature reduction with metal hydrides, or high-pressure solid-state reactions. Besides the crystal chemistry, magnetic and transport properties of the bulk powder and epitaxial thin film samples, the remarkable lability of the hydride anion is particularly highlighted as a new strategy to discover unprecedented mixed anion materials.
