By reviewing and combing the literatures about Chinese Chemistry Olympiad (referred to as CChO), it was found that the studies on CChO by Chinese scholars are concentrated in five parts, including the analysis of the competition test questions, the strategies of training competition, the competition situation of regional area, the commenting on competitions and the comparative analysis of domestic and international Chemistry Olympiad. The results suggest that the competition test questions and the strategies of training competition are two major hotspots. There are only a few studies on the development in Chemistry Olympiad of regional area. In the researches on the strategies of training competition, Chinese scholars have focused on the cultivation of students' thinking and problem-solving skills and gradually began to pay attention to the students' interest, independent learning, and cooperative learning. As the core literacy of chemistry is proposed, some scholars have successively carried out the studies in the combination of the chemistry education hotspots with Chemistry Olympiad (mainly focus on the test questions and the strategies of training competition).

Key words: Chinese Chemistry Olympiad, The review of research status
