The presence of oxo-ligands is one of the main required characteristics for polyoxometalates (POMs), although some oxygen ions in a metallic environment can be replaced by other nonmetals, while maintaining the POM structure. The replacement of oxo-ligands offers a valuable approach to tune the charge distribution and connected properties like reducibility and hydrolytic stability of POMs for the development of tailored compounds. By assessing the reported catalytic and biological applications and connecting them to POM structures, the present review provides a guideline for synthetic approaches and aims to stimulate further applications where the oxo-replaced compounds are superior to their oxo-analogues. Oxo-replacement in POMs deserves more attention as a valuable tool to form chemically activated precursors for the synthesis of novel structures or to upgrade established structures with extraordinary properties for challenging applications.
