Electrochemical solid/liquid interface earned huge interest due to its wide range of application in various fundamental research fields. Combining with electrochemical methods, shell-isolated nanoparticles-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SHINERS) can be employed as a promising technique for better understanding of interface reaction processes. In recent times, it has received great attention by research community as it is universally applicable to many material and morphology surfaces in electrochemical and surface science fields. Based on the recent progress of EC-SHINERS, we first briefly reviewed the development of SHINERS history, and then followed with a detailed introduction of SHINERS application in various electrochemical interfaces studies, including the molecule adsorption, corrosion resistance, catalytic reactions and other applications in different fields from aqueous to non-aqueous systems.
