International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO)
The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is
an annual chemistry competition for highschool students.
It is one of the
International Science Olympiads.
The idea of the IChO emerged at the Czechoslovak National Olympiad in 1968,
where observers from Hungary and Poland were present.
These three countries participated in the first IChO which took place
in Prague, in 1968.
In 1971, no IChO was held.
The ten best IChO tasks

Adobe Acrobat Reader).
A list of recommended chemistry literature for
self-study is in the making.
