The study of the high-temperature superconductive property in compressed hydrogen (H)-rich hydrides has been motivated by hydrides, which become superconducting at low pressure due to chemical precompression. In the present study, we report the first-principles structure searches for stable vanadium(V) hydrides over a pressure scope 0-200 GPa, where stable unexpected stoichiometries of H-rich V hydrides (e.g., VH3, VH5, and VH8) emerge. These dense H-rich V hydrides are metallic with a strong…
