Dong Jae Kim, Tae Yoon Jeon, Sung-Gyu Park, Hye Ji Han, Sang Hyuk Im, Dong-Ho Kim and Shin-Hyun Kim, "Uniform Microgels containing Agglomerates of Silver Nanocubes for Molecular Size-Selectivity and High SERS Activity", Small, accepted for publication (2017).

Microgels containing agglomerates of silver nanocubes are microfluidically created to provide SERS-active substrates. The microgels permit selective infusion of small molecules and nanogaps among the nanocubes serve as hot spots for SERS. Therefore, the microgels enable us to selectively analyze Raman spectra of small molecules dissolved in complex mixtures with high sensitivity in the absence of interruption from large adhesives.
