Title: Electrochemical pathway for the quantification of SERS enhancement factor
Abstract: This communication presents a new pathway for the more precise of surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) enhancement via deducing resonance Raman scattering (RRS) effect from resonance Raman scattering (SERRS). To achieve this, a monolayer of 1,8,15,22-tetraaminophthalocyanatocobalt(II) alpha-Co(II)TAPc) is formed on plasmon inactive glassy carbon (GC) plasmon active GC/AuNP surface. The surfaces are subsequently used common probes for electrochemical and Raman (RRS and SERRS) studies. most crucial parameters required for the quantification of SERS enhancement factor (SSEF) such as real surface area of substarte and the number of 4 alpha-Co(II)TAPc molecules to RRS (on GC) and SERRS (on GC/AuNPs) are precisely by cyclic voltammetry experiments. The present approach of quantification can be applied to varieties of surfaces by choosing appropriate laser line and probe molecule for each surface.
