Bisphenol A (BPA) is an endocrine disruptor which is widely present in fish under the influence of environmental pollution. It is essential to establish a rapid detection method for BPA. Zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-8) is a typical metal-organic framework material (MOFs) with a strong adsorption capacity, which can effectively adsorb harmful substances in food. Combining MOFs and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) can achieve rapid and accurate screening of toxic substances. In this study, a rapid detection method for BPA was established by preparing a new reinforced substrate Au@ZIF-8. The SERS detection method was optimized by combining SERS technology with ZIF-8. The Raman peak at 1172 cm-1 was used as the characteristic quantitative peak, and the lowest detection concentration of BPA was as low as 0.1 mg/L. In the concentration range of 0.1~10 mg/L, the linear relationship between SERS peak intensity and the concentration of BPA was good, and R2 was 0.9954. This novel SERS substrate was proven to have great potential in rapidly detecting BPA in food.
