The IUPAC Prof. Jiang Novel Materials Youth Prize is presented every two years on the occasion of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry – International Conference on Novel Materials and their Synthesis (IUPAC NMS). The winners for this Prize in 2011 are Prof. Zhibo Li and Prof. Jr-Hau He. The next IUPAC conference, NMS-IX, will be held in Shanghai, China, between 17-22 October, 2013.
