Core–shell nanoparticles based on metallic $ReO_3$ nanoparticles have been prepared for the first time. The nanoparticles with the metallic shell viz. $ReO_3$@Au and $ReO_3$@Ag were prepared by the reduction of metal salts over $ReO_3$ nanoparticle seeds. $ReO_3$@$SiO_2$ and $ReO_3$@$TiO_2$ core–shell nanoparticles were prepared by the hydrolysis of the organometallic precursors over the $ReO_3$ nanoparticles. The core–shell nanoparticles have been characterized by transmission electron microscopy, optical absorption spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy. The $ReO_3$@Au and $ReO_3$@Ag core–shell nanoparticles show composite plasmon absorption bands comprising contributions from both $ReO_3$ and Au (Ag) whereas $ReO_3$@$SiO_2$ and $ReO_3$@$TiO_2$ show shifts in the plasmon bands depending on the refractive index of the shell material.
