SOCC '22

This year's Spring Open Chemistry Competition (SOCC), or mock USNCO, over 90 participants from 13 (listed) countries competed for various prizes. As this serves as a mock USNCO, this competition does not sport our tier system, but instead has a single difficulty that is slightly harder than the predicted USCNO exam. We thank the problem writers for contributing towards the competition, and to Dr. Qiang Chen (Dr. Chen) and Professor Jianping Huang (JPH) for their quality assurance.
