In a typical synthesis of PD Au NCs, an aqueous solution (10 mM, 1 mL) of HAuCl 4 ·3H 2 O (99.9+%, Aldrich) was added to 25 mL of DMF. This solution was heated at 90 °C for about 2 h in a conventional forced-convection drying oven. Then, an aqueous solution (50 mg/mL, 1 mL) of PVP (M w = 630,000, Fluka) was quickly injected into the reaction solution and further heated for 6 h. The prepared NCs were separated by centrifugation, and then washed thoroughly with water and ethanol.
FESEM images of the sample were taken with a fieldemission scanning electron microscope (Phillips Model XL30 S FEG). TEM images were obtained with a Tecnai G2 F30 transmission electron microscope operating at 300 kV after placing a drop of NC solution on a carbon-coated Cu grid (200 mesh). XRD patterns were obtained with a Bruker AXS D8 DISCOVER diffractometer using Cu K α (0.1542 nm) radiation. Raman spectra were obtained using a Jobin Yvon/HORIBA LabRAM spectrometer equipped with an integral microscope (Olympus BX 41). The 632.8 nm line of an air-cooled He/Ne laser was used as an excitation source. Raman scattering was detected with 180° geometry using an air-cooled 1024 × 256 pixel charged coupled device (CCD) detector. The Raman band of a silicon wafer at 520 cm −1 was used to calibrate the spectrometer. SERS sample was prepared by dropping 30 μL of a 0.1 mM ethanol solution of 4- ABT or BT onto the drop-casting film of NCs on a Si substrate. After 1 h, it was washed with ethanol and dried under ambient condition.
