The inﬂuence of DAS concentration on the nanoparticles aggregation was in- Molecular linker vestigated by Surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), UV–vis spectroscopy, transmission electron micro- Hot spots scopy (TEM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). It is revealed that linking Ag nanoparticles with hot Surface-enhanced raman spectroscopy −6 spots formation occurs only at sub- or monolayer surface coverage up to 5 × 10 mol/l. At multilayer cov- Stilbene derivatives erage, only single-end interaction of molecules with a surface is possible. The eﬀects of pH and halide salts on the Diamines adsorption mechanism of DAS were also checked. The protonation of amino groups and presence of
