Understanding the detailed relationship between nanoparticle structure and activity remains a significant challenge for the field of surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. To this end, the structural and optical properties of individual plasmonic nanoantennas comprised of Au nanoparticle assemblies that are coated with organic reporter molecules and encapsulated by a SiO2 shell have been determined using correlated transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dark-field Rayleigh scattering microscopy, surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) microscopy, and finite element method (FEM) calculations. The distribution of SERS enhancement factors (EFs) for a structurally and optically diverse set of nanoantennas is remarkably narrow. For a collection of 30 individual nanoantennas ranging from dimers to heptamers, the EFs vary by less than 2 orders of magnitude. Furthermore, the EFs for the hot-spot-containing nanoparticles are uncorrelated to aggregation state and localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) wavelength but are crucially dependent on the size of the interparticle gap. This study demonstrates that the creation of hot spots, where two particles are in subnanometer proximity or have coalesced to form crevices, is paramount to achieving maximum SERS enhancements. © 2010 American Chemical Society.

We report a morphology-correlated surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) from molecules on the surface of individual clusters of gold nanoparticles of two types and compare the signal from clusters of two, three, four, and five nanoparticles with the signal from single particles. Cluster geometry and particle morphology are determined from transmission electron microscopy for both clusters of 78- to 133-nm nanospheres and clusters of ~250-nm-etched cylindrical particles with crevices and sharp edges, formed in templates. Scattering from molecules on etched cylinders, but not spheres, is sufficiently strong to allow spectra to be collected from single particles illuminated at 632.8 nm. SERS intensities from clusters of cylinders are found to scale linearly with particle number, whereas, for nanospheres, the scaling is non-linear. The linear scaling of SERS from cylinders is a reflection of the high enhancement provided by the sharp features of the individual particles; whereas, the non-linear scaling of SERS from clusters of spheres is found to be consistent with the near-field enhancement from inter-particle coupling simulated for clusters of spheres arranged in representative-observed geometries. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

Methods and compositions of matter are disclosed for creating tags such as SERS nanotags which are dispersible in an organic solvent. The tags are inherently hydrophilic and may be made dispersible in an organic solvent by associating the tag with an amphiphilic polymer. Alternatively, a tag may be associated with a surfactant. In another embodiment a tag having an encapsulant of a silicon containing material may be made dispersible in an organic solvent by modifying the encapsulant surface with a hydrophobic silane. In addition, a tag having an encapsulant of a silicon containing material may be modified by the esterification of the encapsulant with an alcohol.

While low-sulfur diesel is making its way to fuel stations across the country, new diesel additives are promising to further clean up the once dirty vehicles. Oxonica is selling Envirox, a diesel additive that uses nano-sized particles to enhance the combustion efficiency of the fuel (not sure exactly how, but I'll find out). The Oxford, England, company claims that Envirox increases fuel efficiency by 5 to 10 percent while reducing particulate emissions by up to 15 percent. The company signed a multimillion dollar deal with Petrol Ofisi of Turkey to add Envirox to its fuel supply. Per their website, I didn't see any deals with U.S. companies as yet. Meanwhile, O2Diesel is getting more buyers of its fuel that combines ethanol and an oxygenating additive with diesel to reduce particulate and NOx emissions. Johnson City Transit in Kansas switched all it buses to the fuel last year, which earned the town an award from the state transit association. O2 Diesel previously said it's fuel was made from biomass, but in Kansas, the company is using corn. (Not a bad strategy for MidWest marketing). It will take a few years to remove the smelly stigma associated with diesel vehicles, but we will likely have a lot more of the vehicles on the road by 2010, hopefully many of which powered biodiesel.
