Technology (UPN: 51)
|Photochromic polymers for human uses|
|Organisation Region||European Union|
|Overview||The proposed technology consists of new photohromic polymers developed by using novel photochromic naphthopyrane derivatives. These polymer materials are safe and biocompatible.|
These new polymers can rapidly and reversibly change their color upon exposure to UV light.
The main features of the proposed technology are:
Market opportunities: Cosmetic (e.g. make-up and skin care products). Opthalmology (e.g. intra-ocular implants) and dermatology, water-based inks and paints.
Smart decorative cosmetics, Smart skin care products, Smart inks, Smart paints, Smart, chameleon textiles, Photochromic intra-ocular implants.
These new photochromic polymers are prepared in a more simple way compared to laborious traditional synthesis methods, allowing a lower production cost. Additionally, the new photochromic molecules are polymerizable or co-polymerizable with the monomers used to synthesize the polymer matrix. The obtained novel photochromic materials are safe for human contacts.
