Spectral conditions: 85 mW of 785 nm, 1 min acquisition time, 8 cm-1 resolution. Acetic acid produced several peaks, notably at 925, 1340, and 1405 cm-1. Subtraction of the acetic acid spectrum reveals a standard SER spectrum of DPA (Fig. 12C). The SER spectral intensity of DPA in acetic acid as a function of concentration is very similar to that previously measured in water.
