The main event of the ChemCamp-2017, “Intellectual Challenge: International Student Chemistry Olympiad” is the contest, which is organized following the ideas of International Mendeleev Olympiad for high-school students. Chemistry Olympiad implies individual competition in solving original problems which deal with state-of-art aspects of fundamental and applied chemistry. Solving problems of the Olympiad, participants are supposed to show their broad chemical knowledge, general scientific erudition and ability to find non-trivial solutions. Final round consists of 5 problems that cover various chemistry fields. The topics of the problems are respectively “Inorganic Chemistry. Chemistry in Material Science”, “Physical Chemistry”, “Organic synthesis. Pharmaceutical and Medical Chemistry”, “Chemistry of living systems” and “Chemical Technology”. All the problems are written by outstanding Professors and Research staff from Lomonosov Moscow State University.

The terms:
Problems of the Olympiad will be available in English and in Russian.
Participants will have 4 hours to write down their solutions.
It’s forbidden to use any printed or written resources during the solving time except the materials provided by organizers (Periodic Table, etc.).
Participants may use their own electronic calculators; however, PCs, tablets and phones are strongly prohibited.
Solutions provided by the participants will be checked and estimated (max score for every problem is 10) by the Olympiad Jury, which consists of the authors of the problems.
Original solutions will be provided by the Olympiad Jury just after the 4-hour-period of actual competition.
Every participant is able to discuss his work and score with authors of problems during the Work Discussion Procedure.
The one who gets the highest total score becomes a Winner of the Chemistry Olympiad.
