In light of the current economic challenges, it is of vital importance that chemical scientists of all ages maximise their employability by demonstrating their scientific ability, either by publishing in peer-reviewed journals or presenting at symposia. However, for chemists at the beginning of their careers, opportunities to present their work at conferences can be limited, and sometimes daunting. As such, the YMN Manchester has established this symposium, with the notable support of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the University of Manchester, to foster the development of the UK's next generation of chemists. It is our hope that the event will provide these chemists with the unique opportunity both to learn from leading researchers in their fields, and present their own work to an audience comprised primarily of their peers. We hope this atmosphere will be stimulating and encourage freedom of expression and scientific debate.

We look forward to an exciting and successful day of Chemical Science and Networking, which we hope will be the springboard for similar symposia to be run annually around the UK. We hope you will put your research forward for consideration by our reviewers, and join us at the University of Manchester on the 20th of October 2010.
