Novel SiO2-based antioxidant compound with significantly extended life-time and activity

Technology Area: Pharmaceuticals & Personal Care

Commercial Maturity: Prototype

Abstract: Silica particles offer a versatile scaffold to develop highly efficient antioxidant SiO2 - gallic acid (GA) hybrid nanomaterials. This allows for independent control of the antioxidant activity and it inhibits the deactivation of GA. This makes such a novel antioxidant compound superior for food, pharma, cosmetics and polymer applications.
