Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopic sensing of glucose

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The small normal Raman cross-section of glucose is a major challenge in its detection by surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) for medical applications, such as blood glucose level monitoring of diabetic patients and evaluation of patients with other medical conditions, since glucose is a marker for many human diseases. Here we will discuss the use of commercially available multilayer graphene sheets as substrates on which gold nanoparticles are chemically assembled by reduction of sodium citrate.
