  • SEIRS for interfacial bioanalysis

    Xinghua Xia

    Surface enhanced infrared absorption spectroscopy (SEIRAS) is a sensitive technique that provides aboundant structural information and exhibits great advantages for bioanalytical application. As a complementary method to surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), SEIRAS in attenuated total reflection (ATR) mode selectively detects the vibrations with their dipole moment variation perpendicular to the surface, which is very useful in determining the orientation and conformation of biomolecules at the interface.
