The active ingredients in sunscreens known as UV filters have come under recent scrutiny for their impacts on the aquatic environment, specifically sensitive coral communities. This talk will discuss the many unique chemistry challenges that factor into sunscreen formulations and the potential environmental impacts of UV filters.
