How do nanoparticles affect the UV-shielding efficiency of acrylic coatings?

In a study, nanocomposite coatings based on pure acrylic emulsion and TiO2/or ZnO nanoparticles were prepared and tested with regard to the photostability and UV shielding efficiency.

Do nanoparticles remain unpredictable?

The nanotech industry is booming. But the way that nanoparticles behave in the environment is extremely complex. There is currently a lack of systematic experimental data to help understand them comprehensively, as environmental scientists have shown in a study.

Making metal surfaces strong, resistant, and multifunctional

Through a novel process, metals can permanently be joined with nearly all other materials, become water-repellent, or improve their biocompatibility. The pre-treatment of ships' hulls before painting could thus be rendered unnecessary.
