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.

Maria Hepel

Distinguished Professor

Maria Hepel received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from Jagellonian University in Krakow, Poland, founded in 1364.  She worked as the Faculty at the State University of New York at Potsdam from 1985 where she is now a Distinguished Professor at the Department of Chemistry. She published over 160 papers which received over 2600 citations, 25 chapters in books, and co-authored / edited 5 books. She has made over 400 presentations at the national and international symposia.  She organized many symposia at the American Chemical Society, Electrochemical Society and International Society of Electrochemistry Meetings and has been the program chair of the 2010 North-East Regional Meeting of ACS. Her current research interests include AFM and Raman Spectroscopy imaging, nanoparticles for medical applications, targeted and controlled release of anticancer drugs, sensors for biomarkers of oxidative stress and cancer, drug interactions with DNA, supercapacitors, electrochromic devices and nanotechnology. She won the SUNY Potsdam President's Award for Excellence in Research and Creative Endeavor in 1995 and 2001, the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1998 and SUNY Chancellor's Award for Research in 2003 and Northeast Region, ACS Award for Achievements in the Chemical Sciences in 2012, Rochester, NY.
