Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy is a powerful analytical technique with widespread applications. In this work, SERS applications in the realms of art conservation and biosensing are reviewed. First, the theory of this unambiguous and ultrasensitive technique is explained. Next, a review of the pedagogical journey in art conservation research through the lenses of undergraduates is offered in Chapter 2, a chapter recently submitted to the American Chemical Society. Finally, an investigation in biosensing SERS is explored with developing a SERS pH sensitive probe while offering new insight into SERS capabilities and the relationship between analyte and nanoparticle.
