Figure S1. Description: For Figure S1, (a to c) EDS spectra taken from the capping particle, the middle, and the shell of a Cu/ZnO nanocable from the sample shown in (Figure 3), respectively. Nickel grids were used in the measurement to make sure that the Cu signals come from the sample, not from the TEM grid.

Figure S2. Description: For Figure S2, (a) SEM and (b) TEM images of Cu/ZnO products obtained at the same experimental condition as the sample in (Figure 3 )except only the substrate is located in the low-temperature zone of 950°C. (c) TEM image of Ag/ZnO products obtained at the same experimental condition as the sample in (Figure 1) except only 0.1 g AgNO3 and 1 g ZnO were used as source materials.
