Syntheses of Cu-, Ag-, and Ag-Cu-CoO nanomaterials are of interest for a wide range of applications including electrochemistry, thermal catalysis, energy storage, and electronics. However, CoO-based nanomaterials have not been explored for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). Here, we present Cu-, Ag-, and Ag-Cu-CoO nanomaterials of a hierarchical flower shape comprising two separate phases: a pure Cu or Ag core and multiple CoO branches, in which the optical properties of the core and the magnetic properties of the branches are integrated.
