This work Langmuir films were employed to study the interaction between lipids and a fungicide called carbendazim (MBC), impedance spectroscopy and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) were used in the detection of this fungicide.The lipids employed to Langmuir films were dioctadecyldimethylammonium bromide (DODAB), didodecyldimethylammonium bromide (DDAB), 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3- phosphocholine (DPPC) and 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phospho-(1'-rac-glycerol) (DPPG) with and without MBC in the subphase. The results show that the MBC interacts strongly with DODAB and DDAB, moderately with DPPC and weakly to DPPG, indicating that it is electrostatic interaction. Sensor units composed of interdigitated electrodes coated with LbL films DODAB/NiTsPc and perilene/DPPG composed an electronic tongue able to distinguish different MBC concentrations in solution, via impedance spectroscopy. Analyzing each sensory unit, the composed with LbL film DODAB/NiTsPc showed the best performance. The SERS studies were performed in three stages. The first one, several morphologies of nanoparticles were synthesized and evaluated which have better SERS signal of MBC. From this study it was concluded that the spherical nanoparticles of silver have better SERS signal of MBC and the subsequent results were obtained only with this nanoparticle. The interaction between MBC and surface of these nanoparticles was carried out by SERS spectra of MBC at several pHs. Here, theoretical calculations were used for assignment of vibrational modes of the MBC and thus help in the interpretation of experimental results. According to experimental and theoretical results neutrally (MBC0 ) and deprotonated (MBC- ) species have affinity for the silver surface and then show SERS signal. Finally, the MBC limit of detection was determined via SERS using a procedure which ensures the reproducibility of the measurements, since SERS technique is not, yet, a routine analytical technique.
