The surface geometry of methyl 3-(4-methoxy phenyl)prop-2-enoate molecule was studied by analysis of the SERS spectra adsorbed on silver colloid surfaces. For a reliable analysis of the SERS spectrum, we also performed density functional theoretical calculations. The absence of a C-H stretching vibrations and the observed C-H out-of-plane bending modes suggest that the MMP molecule may be adsorbed in a flat on orientation to the surface. The SERS spectral studies predict a tilted orientation of ethylenic bridge with respect to the phenyl ring.
