Title: Gold Micro-Flowers: One-Step Fabrication of Efficient, Highly Reproducible Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy Platform
Abstract: We present a new method enabling simultaneous synthesis and deposition gold micro-flowers (AuMFs) on solid substrates in a one-pot process uses two reagents, auric acid and hydroxylamine hydrochloride, in reaction mixture. The AuMFs deposited onto the substrate form stable gold layer of expanded nanostructured surface. The of the AuMFs depends on and can be controlled by the of the reaction solution as well as by the reaction time. nanostructured metallic layers obtained with our method are employed efficient platforms for chemical and biological sensing based on Raman spectroscopy (SERS). SERS spectra recorded by platforms for p-mercaptobenzoic acid and phage lambda exhibit enhancement factors above 10(6) and excellent reproducibility.
