Shape-tunable Ag nanoplates in alumina enable very strong SERS performances showing Raman enhancement factor >1 x 10(9), and allows for easy detection of analyte methylene blue having a concentration in the picomolar range. Raman enhancements have been systematically studied during the Ag nanoparticle-shape evolution from spherical nano particles to hexagonal nanoplates with sharp corners to truncated triangular nanoplates in alumina sol. Large SERS enhancement has been observed because of the uniform dispersion and embedment of Ag nanoplates in a relatively high dielectric alumina network where analyte molecules are held. This new approach gives uniform and strong SERS signal with reproducibility.
