Surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) has emerged as an ultrasensitive analytical tool for chemical, biological, and medical analysis. SERS spectra of permethrin, a common synthetic pyrethroid, were investigated for the first time. The SERS substrates used in this work were a silver nanofilm (AgNF) deposited on glass chips. The characteristic SERS bands of permethrin were analyzed and assigned to the corresponding modes. The strongest SERS band appeared at 1003 cm-1 due to the breath vibration of benzene ring in the permethrin molecule. A detection limit of 10 ppm was obtained on the AgNF sub-strates. A good linear relationship between peak height of the 1003 cm-1 band and permethrin concentration was observed in the range of 10 – 1000 ppm. The results obtained in this work indicate that SERS technique has a great potential for rapid, simple, in situ, and cost-effective detection and monitoring of permethrin in environment and on foods.
