Sunscreens Based on Phenolic-Formaldehyde Particles
Sun-protective polymeric particles using a micro emulsion polymerization by nucleation approach have been developed by researchers at the University of Arizona. The resulting resorcinol-formaldehyde is red to brown in color with strong absorption of UVA and UVB radiation, making it an ideal material for sunscreen. Resorcinol-formaldehyde has been widely...

Tetrazines as Chemical Blowing and Crosslinking Agents in the Preparation of Organosilicon Foams
This invention incorporates the reaction of tetrazine and alkene/alkyne substituted polysiloxanes through the foaming process to develop a product similar to polyurethane foam. This new solution is much less toxic than polyurethane, and has the flexibility of rubber but with added strength due to a silicon-oxide network. Background: Polyurethane...

Dihydropyridazine Antioxidant Sunscreen that Signals Depletion with Bleaching of Fluorescence
This invention is a UVA and UVB absorbent with dihydropyridazine purposed to act as a sunscreen antioxidant. Background: Commercial sunscreens, which aim to prevent the development of skin cancers and melanoma, compete to minimize UV damage while allowing user to apply on either dry or wet skin. Unfortunately, it is difficult to effectively gauge...

Particulate and Film Polymeric Dihydropyridazines as Sunscreens with Inherent Antioxidant Properties
This invention is a polymeric sunscreen that can be applied either as a film or as particles to be suspended in either water or oil. Background: Both UVB and UVA wavelengths penetrate the atmosphere, inducing skin cancers, eye damage and aging if not properly protected or treated. Common commercial sunscreens can block around 93% of UVB and UVA rays,...

Dihydrotetrazine Antioxidants and Free Radical Reaction Inhibitors
This invention is the use of dihydrotetrazines as antioxidants to eliminate free radicals. Dihydrotetrazines were found to be superior to dihydropyridazines or hindered phenols in inhibiting free radical polymerization. Background: Dihydrotetrazines donate up to two hydrogen atoms to terminate radical chain or oxidation reactions. These compounds...
