Effectiveness in UV absorption of hierarchical nano ZnOmicroTiO2 composites with photodegradation inhibition

N sunscreens are formulated by using TiO2 and ZnO nanoparticles because they are efficient inorganic UV filters. In fact microsized TiO2 and ZnO have been increasingly replaced by TiO2 and ZnO

Nanostructured Zn-Ti layered double hydroxides with reduced photocatalytic activity for sunscreen application

The harmful effects of long-term UV exposure on human skin are increasingly understood these days, and therefore, the use of topical sunscreen products containing UV filters has significantly

Synthesis of Planar-Type ZnO Powder in Non-Nano Scale Dimension and Its Application in Ultraviolet Protection Cosmetics

ZnO is one of the most widely used inorganic sunscreens, owing to its fine particle size and UV light shielding capability. However, powders at nanosizes can be toxic and cause adverse effects. The

Investigation of photo-catalytic degradation of methylene orange dye using titanium dioxide–zinc oxide nanocomposites

Excessive use of colored dyes in textile industries has raised the issue of water contamination in Pakistan. To reduce such contaminations, the photocatalytic treatment of the effluent is adopted as

Effects of nanosilica and titanium oxide on the performance of epoxy–amine nanocoatings

Different types of composite coatings were prepared by the blending of colloidal nanosilica (SiO2) and titanium dioxide (TiO2) in epoxy resin to investigate their coating performances. A fixed amount

Synthesis of ZnO-TiO2/Chitosan Nanorods By Using Precipitation Methods and Studying Their Structures and Optics Properties at Different Precursor Molar Compositions

ZnO-TiO2/Chitosan nanorods were synthesized by precipitation method from mixture Zinc nitrate dihydrate (Zn (NO3)2.2H2O) and Titanium Iso Propoxide (TIP) as precursors with different ratio molar



Effective UVA and UVB protection from TiO 2 UV filter

UV filter that enables formulators to use just one, physical TiO2 UV filter to develop broad spectrum sun care products that meet the EC Recommendations. In this article Sunjin show that T-80: w Does

Effect of Annealing Temperature on Structural, Morphology and Optical Properties of ZnO Nano-Needles Prepared by Zinc- Air Cell System Method

ZnO nano-needles have been synthesized successfully on zinc substrate with the zinc-air cell method at room temperature. The effect of annealing temperature on the structure, morphology and optical

Broad spectrum bioactive sunscreens.

Inorganic UV filters

Nowadays, concern over skin cancer has been growing more and more, especially in tropical countries where the incidence of UVA/B radiation is higher. The correct use of sunscreen is the most

Comparison of UVA-induced ROS and sunscreen nanoparticle-generated ROS in human immune cells.

Findings indicate that ROS generation from nanosunscreens is, in most cases, an insignificant contributor to the overall risk associated with oxidative stress from UVA exposure itself.
