Journal Article
Binks, B. P., Fletcher, P. D., Johnson, A. J., Marinopoulos, I., Crowther, J. M., & Thompson, M. A. (2017). Spectrophotometry of thin films of light absorbing particles. Langmuir : the ACS journal of surfaces and colloids, 33(15), 3720-3730. doi:10.1021/acs.langmuir.6b04443

Thin films of dispersions of light absorbing solid particles or emulsions containing a light absorbing solute all have a non-uniform distribution of light absorbing species throughout the sample volume. This results in non-uniform light absorption ov... Read More about Spectrophotometry of thin films of light absorbing particles.

Ultra-stable self-foaming oils (2017)
Journal Article
Binks, B. P., & Marinopoulos, I. (2017). Ultra-stable self-foaming oils. Food Research International, 95, 28-37. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foodres.2017.02.020

This paper is concerned with the foaming of a range of fats in the absence of added foaming agent/emulsifier. By controlling the temperature on warming from the solid or cooling from the melt, crystals of high melting triglycerides form in a continuo... Read More about Ultra-stable self-foaming oils.

How the sun protection factor (SPF) of sunscreen films change during solar irradiation (2016)
Journal Article
Binks, B. P., Fletcher, P. D., Johnson, A. J., Marinopoulos, I., Crowther, J., & Thompson, M. A. (2017). How the sun protection factor (SPF) of sunscreen films change during solar irradiation. Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology A: Chemistry, 333, 186-199 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jphotochem.2016.10.027

We have investigated how the sun protection factor (SPF) of different types of sunscreen film varies with “standard” solar irradiation due to photochemical processes. We have used a combination of chemical actinometry, measurement and modelling to es... Read More about How the sun protection factor (SPF) of sunscreen films change during solar irradiation.

Evaporation of particle-stabilised emulsion sunscreen films (2016)
Journal Article
Binks, B. P., Fletcher, P. D., Johnson, A. J., Marinopoulos, I., Crowther, J. M., & Thompson, M. A. (2016). Evaporation of particle-stabilised emulsion sunscreen films. ACS applied materials & interfaces, 8(33), 21201-21213. https://doi.org/10.1021/acsami.6b06310

We recently showed (Binks et al., ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces, 2016, DOI: 10.1021/acsami.6b02696) how evaporation of sunscreen films consisting of solutions of molecular UV filters leads to loss of UV light absorption and derived sun protection facto...

Evaporation of Sunscreen Films: How the UV Protection Properties Change (2016)
Journal Article
Binks, B. P., Brown, J., Fletcher, P. D., Johnson, A. J., Marinopoulos, I., Crowther, J. M., & Thompson, M. A. (2016). Evaporation of Sunscreen Films: How the UV Protection Properties Change. ACS applied materials & interfaces, 8(21), 13270-13281. https://doi.org/10.1021/acsami.6b02696

© 2016 American Chemical Society. We have investigated the evaporation of thin sunscreen films and how the light absorption and the derived sun protection factor (SPF) change. For films consisting of solutions of common UV filters in propylene glycol... Read More about Evaporation of Sunscreen Films: How the UV Protection Properties Change.
