Modern sunscreens often contain nanosized mineral UV filters, e. g. titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. From an environmental perspective this is a particularly sensitive application since the nanoparticles exist unbound in these products and thus can be released into the
In order to prove the possible environmental impact by nanomaterial containing sunscreens nanospecific adapted test guidelines and routine measurinig methods are necessary.

The recently published results of the Harris Poll show that nanotechnology awareness amongst Americans is still low. But there are surprising differences in opinion, information channel use and attitude towards the application of nanotechnologies in different areas.
The poll was conducted by Harris Interactiv - a U.S. based research organisation - amongst 2'467 adults in the United States.

Nanoscale titanium-dioxide may well be the most widely manufactured and used nanomaterial in the world. It is also one of the most widely studied. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has now issued a new nanoscale reference material for use in a wide range
of environmental, health and safety studies of industrial nanomaterials.
The new NIST reference material is a sample of commercial titanium dioxide powder commonly known as “P25".

The issue of "Working Safely with Nanomaterials" has not been discussed in vocational training and company-specific instruction so far, though, due to their enhanced properties nanomaterials are increasingly processed in the value chain of different industries.
The new training and instruction module “Working Safely with Nanomaterials” closes this gap. The module was developed by Helmut Elbert in cooperation with different experts from Switzerland. It is available in German so…
