Resumen© 2014 American Chemical Society. In this work, we report the detection of the organochlorine pesticides aldrin, dieldrin, lindane, and α-endosulfan by using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and optimization of the SERS-sensing substrate. In order to overcome the inherent problem of the low affinity of the above pesticides, we have developed a strategy consisting of functionalization of the metal surface with alkyl dithiols in order to achieve two different goals: (i) to induce the nanoparticle linkage and create interparticle junctions where sensitive hot spots needed for SERS enhancement are present, and (ii) to create a specific environment in the nanogaps between silver and gold nanoparticles, making them suitable for the assembly and SERS detection of the analyzed pesticides. Afterward, an optimization of the sensing substrate was performed by varying the experimental conditions: type of metal nanoparticles, molecular linker (aromatic versus aliphatic dithiols and the length of the intermediate chain), surface coverage, laser excitation wavelength. From the adsorption isotherms, it was possible to deduce the corresponding adsorption constant and the limit of detection. The present results confirm the high sensitivity of SERS for the detection of the organochlorine pesticides with a limit of detection reaching 10-8 M, thus providing a solid basis for the construction of suitable nanosensors for the identification and quantitative analysis of this type of chemical.
