Introduction: The skin, can be exposed to harmful factors like ultraviolet radiation (UV). Exposure to this physical hazardous agent could be contributed to pigmentation, erythemas, early aging, skin cancer, and DNA damage. The aim of this study, therefore, was to fabricate the polyacrylonitrile (PAN) nanofibers with the UV protection property by the use of various concentrations of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles.
Material and Methods: The PAN nanofibers (10%wt) containing 0, 1, 5, 10 and 15% wt of TiO2 nanoparticles were produced using electrospinning method. The morphological propertis of nanofibers were studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the functional groups were investigated by Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FTIR). The UV protection property of nanofibers was studied by measuring UV transmittance as well as calculating UV protection factor (UPF).
Results: The results showed that the diameter and morphological characteristics of nanofibers are different at various concentrations of TiO2 and increasing the concentration of TiO2 has resulted to an increase in nanofibers diameter. The analysis of FTIR results showed that TiO2 nanoparticles have been successfully loaded on nanofibers for UV protection purposes. The findings clarified that nanofibers loaded with TiO2 could increase the UV protection property up to 15%.
Conclusion: Totally, our findings show the successful fabrication of UV-protective nano webs using TiO2 nanoparticles. the new combination used in nano matcould protect employees from UV radiation.
