Raman and DFT study of methimazole chemisorbed on gold colloidal nanoparticles.

The adsorption of methimazole on gold colloidal nanoparticles was investigated using a combination of surface-enhanced Raman scattering and density functional theory calculations, which allowed identifying the thiolate anion as the molecular species chemically interacting with the active sites of the gold surface, modeled as zero-charge metal adatoms, only… CONTINUE READING
