We report a highly sensitive and selective surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-based detection of aqueous Zn(II) ions (limit of detection 10−14 M). Spectral changes for a silver nanoparticle-bound Raman reporter upon Zn(II) chelation constitutes the assay, which is applied to drinking water and to measurements of cellular uptake of Zn(II).
