Micelles composed of specifically functionalized surfactants can be used to great advantage in resonance Raman spectroscopy. In addition to circumventing the problem of luminescence background, micelles allow the use of aqueous solvents which stabilize labile species and improve the signal-to-noise ratio. The first examples of micelle-mediated resonance Raman analysis of fluorescent compounds using ultraviolet excitation are given.
