International journal of Nano Scientific Networks 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 Nano Scientific Networks 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.

Thomas F. George

Chancellor and Professor

Thomas F. George has been chancellor and professor of chemistry and physics at the University of Missouri–St. Louis since 2003.  Prior to that, he was chancellor at the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point, provost at Washington State University, dean of science at SUNY-Buffalo, and promoted by age 29 to full professor of chemistry at the University of Rochester.  He received his B.A. degree (Phi Beta Kappa) with a double major in chemistry and mathematics from Gettysburg College, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees at age 23 from Yale University, with postdoctoral appointments at MIT and UC-Berkeley.

Tom’s research specialty is chemical/materials/laser/nanophysics, including nanomedicine.  He continues to be an active researcher with 790 papers, 7 authored and 18 edited books.  His awards include the Marlow Medal from the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK), Medal of Honor from Gulf University for Science and Technology in Kuwait, and Diploma of Honour from Seinájoki University of Applied Sciences in Finland.  He holds honorary doctorates from the University of Szeged in Hungary and PhranakhonRajabhat University in Thailand, and he has been elected as a foreign member of the Korean Academy of Science and Technology.  As a hobby, he plays jazz keyboard and has performed throughout the St. Louis region and overseas in Bosnia, Croatia, China, Hungary, Kuwait, Oman, Romania and Russian Siberia.

Tom has been married since 1970 to Dr. Barbara Harbach, Curators’ Distinguished Professor of Music, director of the School of Fine and Performing Arts, and director of Women in the Arts at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.  They are the proud owners (actually, servants) of four cats – two tortoise females (Luna and Stella) and two younger, mischievous males (Jeremiah and Jarrett).

Theory of laser-induced chemical/materials physics, nonlinear optics, molecular collision dynamics, chemical reactions, energy transfer, molecular clusters/nanostructures, fractals, surface and solid-state chemistry/physics, high-temperature superconductivity, polymers, nanoscience and nanomedicine.
