Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) up to now has been claimed for nearly one hundred compounds on more then ten different substrates, ranging from silver (which is obviously the best candidate) to mercury and even polydiacetylene. The challenge to give a theory for an enhancement of six powers of ten has been readily taken up by theorists. The topic has been reviewed recently by several authors [1–4].
