Nanoparticulate inorganic UV absorbers
Inorganic nanoparticles with UV-absorbing properties are an important class of UV filters.
They can be used in various applications and in a variety of forms, including suspensions, nanocomposites, and solid thin films.
Most popular UV-absorbing nanomaterials
In a review, researchers from DWI Leibniz Institut für Interaktive Materialien gave an overview of the synthetic methods and their respective products for the most popular UV-absorbing nanomaterials, including zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, cerium dioxide and ferrous oxides, and oxyhydroxides.
The study is published in: Journal of Coatings Technology and Research, July 2015, Volume 12, Issue 4, pp 617-632
