In order to obtain UV-shielding materials with good comfort, higher safety and effective UV-shielding ability, lepidocrocite type plate-like titanate (K0.8Li0.27Ti1.73O4, donated as: PLT)/calcia-doped ceria (donated as: CDC) composites were synthesized by a sol-gel method. After dissolving Ce(NO3)3·6H2O and Ca(NO3)2·4H2O into absolute ethanol at 40 °C, glacial acetic acid (HAc) and PLT particles dispersed into absolute ethanol were added. Then, the solution was heated at 60 °C to get gel-like substance. This gel was dried in a vacuum oven at 333 K for 5 h, and then, the product was collected and ground in an agate mortar followed by calcination at 1073 K for 2 h to form PLT/CDC composites. By optimization, 20 mass% of CDC was coated by one operation. PLT/CDC composites with higher CDC content were obtained by repeating the coating process. The morphology, catalytic activity for the oxidation of organic material, UV-shielding ability and dynamic friction coefficient of as-obtained PLT/CDC composites were characterized. As a result, broad-spectrum UV-shielding composite materials with good comfort and low oxidation catalytic activity were successfully synthesized.
