Abstract

A summary of the searches performed by the CMS experiment on the 8TeV LHC data for direct production of additional scalars and pseudoscalar neutral bosons with masses below the higgs boson h$_{125}$ is presented. These searches are motivated by the predictions of several BSM theories, most significantly extensions of the non mininal extensions of the MSSM like the NMSSM, where additional scalar and pseudoscalar states are expected. The mass range from 350\,MeV to 110\,GeV is explored with different final states. The current status and the extension of these searches to the run-II of the LHC are described.
