Summary We report here, for the first time, the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectra of resveratrol using KNO3-aggregated citrate-reduced silver (Ag) colloids. The technique provided a substantial spectral enhancement and therefore good quality spectra of resveratrol at parts per million (ppm) concentrations. The detection limit was found to be <1 μM, equivalent to <0.2 ppm. The SERS profile additionally closely resembled its normal solid-state Raman spectrum with some changes in relative intensity. These intensity changes, together with a precise band assignment aided by density functional theory calculations at the B3LYP/6–31G(d) level, allowed the determination of the structural orientation of the adsorbed resveratrol on the surface of the metal nanoparticles. In particular, the SERS spectra obtained at different resveratrol concentrations exhibited concentration-dependent features, suggesting an influence of surface coverage on the orientation of the adsorbed molecules. At a high concentration, an adoption of close-to-upright orientation of resveratrol adsorbed on the metal surface through the p-OH phenyl ring is favoured. The binding structure is, however, altered at lower surface coverage when the concentration decreases to a tilted orientation with the trans-olefin C=C bond aligning closer to parallel to the surface of the Ag nanoparticles.
