Electrospun chitosan nanofibrous substrates are functionalized with silver nanoparticles by reduction of silver from Tollens reagent using glucose. Filling factor is estimated through developed protocol by using analysis of scanning electron microscopy images. Obtained nanocomposite silver-chitosan plasmonic films display reliable surface enhanced Raman scattering signal of rhodamine B with the concentration 10-5 M adsorbed onto the surface of functionalized substrates.
