photo- +‎ stable

Examples

  • Sunscreens need to be photostable to work well, and one of the most effective chemicals in blocking UVA rays, avobenzone, is not photostable.

    Too much in the sun: Neutrogena v. Coppertone

  • But avobenzone is not photostable, so it requires a photostabilizer (such as the new Helioplex) to prevent it from degrading quickly (usually in less than two hours) in sunlight.

    Simple Skin Beauty

  • The potential usefulness of insecticide-treated mosquito nets (ITMNs) in malaria control was reconsidered in the 1980s with the advent of the photostable synthetic pyrethroids.

    1. Introduction

  • The ANEW Solar Advance anti-aging sun care line not only provides superior protection against the sun's damaging rays with photostable broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, but is also designed to repair skin cell sun damage.

  • Graduate student Nathaniel Shank synthesized a modified DIR, making it eight-times more photostable.

  • Polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs) are extremely efficient at catalysing the transformation of photostable chlorine reservoirs into photolabile species, which are actively involved in springtime ozone-depletion events.

  • In the Max Planck Institute for NanoBiophotonics in Göttingen, Stefan Hell (2009 recipient of the Otto Hahn Prize) has developed fluorescence microscopy methods for observing objects on the nanoscale and with his colleagues Vladimir Belov and Christian Eggeling a new series of photostable dyes that can be used as fluorescent markers has been realised, as reported in a cover story in Chemistry-A European Journal.
