Cinnamates are widely used as UVA and UVB absorbers in commercial sunscreens. Their absorption properties and photochemical stability can be tuned by substitution at the molecule's aromatic ring. Time-dependent density functional theory is used in this study to aid the design of novel UVB blocking molecules by selecting the substituted methyl-cinnamate and cinnamic acid among different candidates with the desired photochemical and photophysical behavior.
