Abstract: Titanium dioxide is among the most prominently used nanomaterials, particularly in cosmetic products such as sunscreens. This research was designed to examine the effect of sunscreen components, specifically polymeric stabilizing agents, on the transport and retention of uncoated titanium dioxide nanoparticles (nano-TiO2) in water-saturated quartz sands. This was achieved by performing a... read more
