The IUPAC–Jiang Novel Materials Youth Prize
The IUPAC–Jiang Novel Materials Youth Prize is presented every two years on the occasion of the IUPAC International Conference on Novel Materials and their Synthesis (IUPAC NMS). The purpose of the prize is to promote international collaboration and understanding between developed and developing countries. The prize is given on the basis of scientific merit for independent research dealing with novel materials in the broadest context of fine chemicals, polymers, energy storage and conversion, nano materials, and other chemicals. Candidates must be not above 40 years of age as of 1 January in the year in which the prize is awarded and should also have at least six months of graduate study or working in at least one developed country and at least one developing country.
Call for Applicants

The prize is awarded to two scientists under 40 years of age whose research has had a major impact on novel chemical materials including their characterization, performance, and/or application.
The winner will be awarded USD 1000 plus travel and hotel expenses to attend NMS 2011, where he/she will present a keynote lecture.
