The contamination of pesticide residues in Oolong tea has raised much concern in recent years. The objective of this study was to synthesize gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and develop surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) methods for detection and quantification of pesticides in Oolong tea. Facile synthesis of spherical and monodispersed AuNPs with an average diameter of 15 nm was achieved, which induced strong electromagnetic fields in SERS analysis. AuNP substrates were employed for rapid detection and quantification of carbendazim in Tieguanyin Oolong tea. Partial least squares (PLS) analysis and leave-one-out cross validation were utilized in spectral data analysis. The PLS results for Oolong tea samples were obtained: R value = 0.964; the detection limit = 100 µg/kg. These results demonstrate that SERS coupled with gold nanoparticle substrate is a simple, rapid, and sensitive analytical tool for measurement and quantification of carbendazim residues in Oolong tea.
