Nickel oxide and silver oxide nanoparticles have wonderful properties that could be employed in numerous applications. Thus, synthesis of nickel silver oxide nanostructures with different characteristics is of great interest. In this review, many synthesis methods were reported such as: electrodeposition, electrochemical method, simple immersion process and subsequent RFsputtering deposition, chemical oxidative polymerization, followed by acidic sol–gel process, flame-based process, liquidphase reduction technique, sol–gel, hydrothermal method, co-precipitation method, simple precipitation method, thermal decomposition, chemical wet synthesis, low and high-temperature reduction, high-pressure autoclave, thermal treatment method, and laser-liquid–solid interaction technique. Reporting all methods employed for the fabrication of NiO and Ag2O nanostructures is useful to produce and develop novel nanomaterials with enhanced properties and applications. Studying the factors that tuned their properties: particle size, shape, and capping agents as well as solution pH is highly recommended in future works. Also, further research studies should be conducted for finding another/other facile and effective synthesis method/methods.
