Investigators from Southeast University Have Reported New Data on Hydroxides [Facile synthesis of gold coated copper(II) hydroxide pine-needle-like micro/nanostructures for surface-enhanced Raman scattering]

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Current study results on Hydroxides have been published. According to news originating from Jiangsu, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "This work reports a facile method to fabricate gold coated copper(II) hydroxide pine-needle-like micro/nanostructures for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) application."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Southeast University, "The effects of reaction parameters on the shape, size and surface morphology of the products are systematically investigated. The as-prepared 3D hierarchical structures have the advantage of a large surface area available for the formation of hot spots and the adsorption of target analytes, thus dramatically improving the Raman signals."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The finite difference time domain calculations indicate that the pine-needle-like model pattern may demonstrate a high quality SERS property owing to the high density and abundant hot spot characteristic in closely spaced needle-like arms."
