39th OLYMPICS OF CHEMISTRY
Our candidates in the 39th Chemistry Olympics, participated in the selection test (last test of the competition!). It was a 3-hour practical work on the chemistry in cosmetics: synthesis of benzoic acid, identification of the product by chromatography (TLC), liquid-liquid extraction and partition coefficient. These different techniques no longer hold any secrets for them! Congratulations to our five chemists for their commitment. The results will be published by the AEFE mid-April.
