Applied Spectroscopy  April 69[4]

The synergistic effect produced by metallic nanoparticles when incorporated into different systems empowers a research field that is growing rapidly. Organometallic materials are at the center of intensive research with diverse applications such as light-emitting devices, transistors, solar cells, and sensors. The Langmuir–Blodgett (LB) technique has proven suitable to address challenges inherent to organic devices, since the film properties can be tuned at the molecular level. Sabrina A. Camacho and colleagues report a strategy to incorporate gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) into the LB film by co-deposition in order to achieve surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) of the zinc(II)-protoporphyrin (IX) dimethyl ester (ZnPPIX-DME) in the April 2015 paper entitled, "Co-Deposition of Gold Nanoparticles and Metalloporphyrin Using the Langmuir–Blodgett (LB) Technique for Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS)", pp. 451-456.
