Abstract

The motion of the plasmonic nano-dopant in photopolymers was monitored in situ and in real time using the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) technique. Here an Au@MBA@Ag (core-molecule-shell) nanoparticle colloid was synthesized to act as the nano-dopant and adsorbed 4-mercaptobenzoic acid (MBA) between the Au cells and Ag shells as the internal standard. The changes of the MBA signal closely reflect the motion of nanoparticles, since the MBA signal itself has time stability. Experimental data indicate that the optimized concentration of the nano-dopant can be obtained based on the peak intensity change of MBA at 1583  cm1. This Letter provides a novel way for in situ monitoring of photophysicial and photochemical processes.
