Paper Abstract

Surface enhanced resonance Raman scattering (SERRS) is rapidly emerging as a new and unique analytical tool for sensitive and selective analysis. In the form developed[l-4] in the authors' laboratory, an analyte containing a chromophore is added to a stable silver colloidal suspension and the suspension aggregated. The suspension is then excited with a laser and the scattered light collected using a conventional Raman spectrometer.
