International Chemistry Olympiad Questions: Can you answer them?

44th International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is going to be held on July 21–30, 2012 at the University of Maryland, USA. Secondary school students from all around the world are competing for medals by taking both theoretical and laboratory examinations in chemistry. As this years exam is coming very close, here we put some of the questions asked in previous exams. 

“Graduate students might be able to answer most of the questions, but not all of them, and certainly not within the period of time that’s expected,” writes Chemistry and Engineering News quoting Michael P. Doyle, chair of the chemistry and biochemistry department at the University of Maryland.
