We have measured resonance Raman spectra with greatly suppressed fluorescence (FL) background from rhodamine 6G (R6G) and protoporphyrin IX (PPP) adsorbed on graphene. The FL suppression is estimated to be approximately 10(3) times for R6G. The successful observation of resonance Raman peaks demonstrates that graphene can be used as a substrate to suppress FL in resonance Raman spectroscopy (RRS), which has potential applications in low-concentration detection and RRS study of fluorescent molecules.
