Featured Researcher Video - Team hBN Sunscreen

This month’s featured research video highlights CSU’s Team hBN Sunscreen, led by Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering Geyou Ao and supported by four CSU undergraduate students.

The team is applying the customer discovery process to determine the commercial viability of a novel sunscreen comprised of hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) nanosheets in solvents at high concentrations. The nanosheets have enhanced biocompatibility and the high mass potency needed to produce emulsified products at lower material costs while remaining environmentally friendly relative to current products.
