Abstract: Gold nanochains were prepared by the assembly of citrate-stabilized gold nanospheres induced by cationic conjugated polymers. This assembly method was rapid, and the assembled product was very stable. A longitudinal plasmon resonance band was formed as a result of the coupling of gold nanoparticles and can be tuned from visible to near-infrared by adjusting the polymer/Au molar ratio. The gold nanochains were used as a SERS substrate and gave an enhancement factor of 8.4 × 109, which is ∼400 times larger than that on the isolated gold nanosphere substrate. The giant SERS enhancement is ascribed to the large electromagnetic fields of coupled gold nanoparticles. © 2008 American Chemical Society.
