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.




Alejandro Criado

Cooperative Research

Dr. Alejandro Criado, 34 years old, is a “Juan de la Cierva Incorporación”fellow working at Carbon Bionanotechnology Lab in“Asociación Centro de Investigación Cooperativa en Biomateriales”(CIC biomaGUNE center). He received his Master and Ph.D. degree in Chemistry in 2008 and 2013, respectively. During his PhD studentship period, he focused his research on the construction of organic nanostructures by cycloaddition reactions. As a post-doctoral researcher, he joinedtheCarbon Nanotechnology group at Università degli Studi di Trieste in Italy in 2013, focusing on the functionalization of carbon nanostructures for biosensing. InSeptember 2015 he joined the Carbon Bionanotechnology Lab at CICbiomaGUNE Research Center in Spain, and he has focused his research on fundamental chemistry for the modification of 2D materials and their use in biomedical devices, such as drug delivery systems, biocompatible materials and sensing implants. During this period,he is participating as task-responsible in the European Graphene Flagship project (
