This problem set was developed to assist undergraduate students taking a one semester or two semester, non-majors course in organic chemistry. Students in these courses often come to organic chemistry from diverse backgrounds including biology, microbiology, and a variety of medical-related fields (e.g., pre-medical, pre-nursing, pre-pharmacy, and others). If you are one of these students, these problems were made for you. We have generated a series of questions and answers dealing with major topics in organic chemistry as they apply to biology, medicine, and cell biology. In addition, we have included questions related to important analytical chemistry tools that students might encounter during their professional careers.
