Printed Electronics and Printed Gold Nanoparticle Pad for Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy Applications in Agriculture

Erwin P. Enriquez, PhD
Department of Chemistry

This project will use our patentable gold nanoparticle printable ink formulation and its application in the rapid assessment of quality of agricultural produce using Surface Enhance Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) technique. In previous projects, we worked with various sectors in agriculture all clamoring for rapid, reliable methods of testing of quality (e.g., authenticity, profile) in their supply chains, such as medicinal plants, water quality of brackish water, virgin coconut oil, and others.1 Thus, a confluence of 4IR methodologies using computational chemometrics, nanotechnology and printing will be developed to expand the printing and SERS tools we acquired from our CHED-PCARI project.
