The 44th International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) attracted 283 participants from 72 countries and territories across the world.

The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is an annual competition for the world's most talented chemistry students at the secondary school level. Nations around the world send a team of four students, who are tested on their knowledge of chemistry and skills in a five-hour laboratory practical and five-hour written theoretical examination.

The first IChO was held in Prague, former Czechoslovakia ( now the Czech Republic ) in 1968. The event has been held every year since then, with the exception of 1971.
