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.

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".
