AbstractIn this work, surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) and surface-enhanced fluorescence (SEF) were employed in the study of the adsorption and detection of the pigments quinacridone (QA) and 2,9-dimethylquinacridone (2,9-DMQA). These pigments are of great relevance in artwork and textile, plastic, and photochemical industries due to their condition as high performance pigments since they possess a high tinting strength. Due to this fact, they have been employed at relatively low concentrations. Therefore, the analysis and detection of these pigments requires the application of a highly sensitivity technique, such as SERS and SEF. The adsorption of QA and 2,9-DMQA on silver nanoparticles was extensively studied by means of SERS at different surface coverages. This study was completed by carrying out an in depth vibrational (Raman and IR) analysis of these pigments in solid state by ab initio density functional theory (DFT) calculations. In addition, UV-vis spectroscopy was employed to investigate the aggregation undergone by both pigments in solid state and in solution. 2,9-DMQA was demonstrated to have a lower tendency toward aggregation due to the presence of methyl groups. Even so, this molecule follows a BET adsorption mechanism on the metal nanoparticles due to its high tendency toward intermolecular interaction. From the analysis of the adsorption mechanism of this molecule, the limit of detection was deduced to be ca. 55 ppb. © 2013 American Chemical Society.
