Organochlorine pesticide endosulfan has been detected for the first time by using surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) at trace concentrations. The bis-acridinium dication lucigenine was successfully used as a molecular assembler in the functionalization of metal nanoparticles to facilitate the approach of the pesticide to the metal surface. From the SERS spectra valuable information about the interaction mechanism between the pesticide and lucigenin can be deduced. In fact, endosulfan… CONTINUE READING
