We are pleased to invite schoolchildren to participate in 2017 International Chemistry Tournament. This is a team competition which combines aspects of Olympiads and scientific conferences. Problem set is published in advance – no later than two month before the tournament. All tasks are open-ended. It means that each of them may have more than one correct solution or don’t have any. It often demands to conduct a brief research to successfully find a perfect solution. You may find actual problem set in attachment.

Participants will present their findings at the final part of the tournament, which is being held in Moscow State University, Russia in 26-30th of June, 2017. During each stage of the tournament team challenges other teams and is challenged by other teams to defend solutions for chosen problems. Thus teams act sequentially as a reporters, opponents and reviewers. Team’s performance is evaluated by jury.

The problem set was finely selected from the previous local Moscow Chemistry Tournaments (being held at 2011-2015).

The working language of IChTo is English. Each team consists of 4–6 schoolchildren pupils/students representing one country.
