AbstractIn surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) technique the preparation of metal substrates containing minimum hindrance from impurities is an important issue. The synthesis of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) active as SERS substrates and having the above-mentioned advantage, were obtained by electron beam irradiation of Ag+ aqueous solutions. Ag+ ions were reduced by free radicals radiolytically generated in solution without the addition of chemical reductants or stabilizing agents. The metal colloids were characterised by UV–Vis spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy, monitoring the nanoparticles’ growth process that depends on the irradiation dose and the initial AgNO3 concentration. Nanoparticles of long-time stability and with different size and shape, included silver nanocubes, were synthesised by varying the irradiation dose. Different tests on the SERS activity of Ag NPs obtained by electron beam irradiation were performed by using benzenethiol as a probing molecule, achieving a good magnification of the adsorbate Raman bands.
