Zero valent silver fused with a manufactured carbon-fiber sheet referred to in this context as (Ag–C) was used as a surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate to detect 2, 4-dinitrotoluene (DNT), an explosive material. Essentially, the silver on the sheet served as a control group. A detection of 50 ppm was established with Raman. Thus, SERS provided results separate from those collected with blank carbon sheet alone, helping indicate the presence of DNT.
