Abstract

The unique ability to obtain molecular recognition of an analyte at very low concentrations in situ in aqueous environments using surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) and surface enhanced resonance Raman scattering (SERRS) detection makes these spectroscopies of considerable interest. Improved understanding of the effect coupled to improvements in practical techniques make the use of SERS/SERRS much simpler than has been the case in the past. This article is designed as a tutorial review targeted at aiding in the development of practical applications.
