A planar molecule, copper phthalocyanine (CuPc), is used to study molecular orientation effects in graphene-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. Annealing allows the CuPc molecule in a Langmuir–Blodgett film to change orientation from upstanding to lying down. The magnitude of the chemical enhancement, which is highly sensitive to molecular orientation, can be used to evaluate the degree of interaction between the molecules and graphene.
