Material supply of non-commercial compounds which are mesoionic compounds is required. Mesoionic compounds are stable zwitterionic compounds that possess aromaticity. For a few recent reviews of these types of compounds, please see the Detailed Description of the Challenge. The Seeker intends to award multiple Solvers for each of their qualifying submissions.
Building Block Challenge: In order to submit to this Challenge, you must allow the Seeker to view the structure of your compound in the Structure Selection stage of the Challenge.
Intellectual Property: In return for the Initial Transfer Fee of $100 per compound, you are expected to grant the Seeker only a non-exclusive license to test your compound(s) in their in-house assays and/or use the compound(s) to prepare other compounds for in-house testing.
Material supply of non-commercial compounds which are mesoionic compounds is required. Mesoionic compounds are stable zwitterionic compounds that possess aromaticity. The Seeker intends to award multiple Solvers for each of their qualifying submissions.
By the deadline, Solvers are requested to provide a list of structures which meet the Requirements listed in the Detailed Description of the Challenge. For the structures that are selected by the Seeker, the Solver shall then send in material samples along with documentation of their purity.
Referral Award: If you refer a new Solver to this Challenge and he or she receives an award for the Challenge, you will receive an award equal to 10% of what your referred Solver received.
Please go to our Upload Your Libraries Challenge if you would like to have your list of compounds for this Challenge considered for future Challenges, or if you would like to upload your entire library of compounds for consideration in future Challenges.
This Challenge is targeting Solvers who:
This Challenge provides Solvers with a three month time period for preparing the selected compounds after the deadline of the Challenge.

What is an RTP Challenge?
An InnoCentive RTP (Reduction to Practice) Challenge is a prototype that proves an idea, and is similar to an InnoCentive Theoretical Challenge in its high level of detail. However, an RTP requires the Solver to submit a validated solution, either in the form of original data or a physical sample. Also the Seeker is allowed to test the proposed solution.
