Based on the deep 273 ks archival Chandra data we performed detailed spectral and imaging analysis of the young O-rich supernova remnant (SNR) 1E 0102.2-7219 in the Small Magellanic Cloud. Our aim in this study is to reveal spatial and chemical structures of this remnant in unprecedented details. We examined radial and azimuthal structures in the electron temperature, ionization timescale, density, and elemental abundances. We present our preliminary results from this study.
