Synthesis of non-toxic, UV absorbing – White-light emitting nanoparticles

Organization:Nanoinnoway, Inc., CA, US
I.P. Brief:Proprietary technology to synthesize non-toxic nanoparticles which absorb ultraviolet light and emit white-light. These materials are potential candidates for use in sun-creams and sun glasses. Incorporation of them into building materials such as glass and polymers can lead to self-lighting windows and walls in buildings.
Keywords:Silica nanoparticles, non-toxic, photoluminescent, light emitting, white-light, Ultra violet protection, solar radiation, solar cell, skin protection cream, sun glasses
Primary Industry:Materials
Specific Market: companies making cosmetic creams, sun glasses and building materials
