International journal of Nanoparticles and Nanotechnology (IJNN) is a multidisciplinary, peer reviewed journal which includes all the major fields in nanotechnology and Nano science. Nanoscience and nanotechnology brought up an unprecedented excitement in the scientific and engineering communities, especially the last decade. It is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. This covers both current work and concepts that are more advanced.  International journal of Nanoparticles and Nanotechnology   publishes original research papers during a broad area of nanoscience & engineering. IJNN provides an ideal forum for presenting original reports of theoretical and experimental nanoscience and nanotechnology research. Nanotechnology is a gathering of rising innovations in which the structure of matter is controlled at the nanometer scale, the size of little quantities of molecules, to create novel materials and gadgets that have valuable and one of kind properties. IJNN is naturally multidisciplinary, and welcomes submissions across biological, physical, engineering, and computer sciences. Contributions from both academia and industry are equally encouraged. IJNN also publishes innovative techniques and instrumentation for the fabrication, characterization and testing of nano-enabled devices and technologies, as well as advanced modelling and simulation methods.




Bruno Azambre


Bruno Azambre is 45 years old and is Associate Professor (Hab.) at University of Lorraine – Institut Jean Barriol (France). After of a PhD thesis in Metz devoted to the catalytic/sorption properties of functionalized carbons (2000), he worked as post-doc at University of Reading (UK) on inorganic nanotubes. When in 2003 he became a permanent lecturer, he examined the reactivity of pollutants with sorbents/catalysts in numerous fields such as automotive depollution (cold-start, soot oxidation, NOx-SCR, NOx-traps….), AOP’s (photocatalysis, Fenton’s reaction) , nuclear safety (capture of iodine and RuO4…) and others. His works are devoted to the design, surface characterization, testing of reactive materials (zeolites, rare-earth oxides, functionalized carbons, mesoporous materials) and the elucidation of complex mechanisms by in situ/operando spectroscopies. He is co-author of about 60 publications and 100 communications and has been member of many european research networks.

Current Research

  • Design, synthesis, characterization and reactivity of nanostructured materials (functionalized mesostructured silicas, silver zeolites, MOFs….) for iodine capture (nuclear application)
  • Supported catalysts and sorbents for the abatement of unburnt hydrocarbons, NOx and soot
  • Cerium-based catalysts for removal of pollutants in wastewaters (Fenton reaction)

Interested topics

  • Nanoporous materials (zeolites, mesostructured silicas and carbons, inorganic nanotubes)
  • Environmental catalysis
  • Reaction mechanisms by in situ IR spectroscopy
