Abstract

The synthesis of seven monoazo benzotriazole dyes for use in surface enhanced resonance Raman scattering, SERRS, is reported. The dyes are all capable of complexing to the silver surface used to provide the surface enhancement found in SERRS and hence act as 'model' analytes. One dye was examined in detail and showed a quantitative relationship between concentration and signal intensity.
