Molecular Model Set, Large
This molecular model set is ideal for chemistry students who are learning about molecules! The kit contains enough "atoms," represented by 2 cm diameter wooden balls, to make large molecules. (Look in a chemistry book for ideas of what molecules to build.)
Ball colors and quantities are 30 black carbon, 30 white hydrogen, 12 red oxygen, 5 orange nitrogen, 18 green halogen, and 5 yellow sulfur. The models are connected with different lengths of flexible metal springs. Ages 13 & up.

I bought this set for my home-schooled son. He loves it! It is a high-quality product. No doubt it will see lots of use!

The bookstore at my school was selling a much smaller kit than this for $60. This kit allows me to make all of the molecules I want for Organic Chemistry because of the amount of atoms and springs in it.
- Friday, April 26, 2013Highly recommend!Reviewed By: Amy Lowe
Purchased this set for my son's Physical Science class, and we'll certainly be using it later for chemistry, as well. Very well constructed---wooden balls and metal springs for the bonds (nothing cheap and plastic!) We received our order within days---even to Hawai'i! My son hasn't put the set down since he's gotten it. A great visual way to learn various compounds. My only complaint is wishing that more elements were represented (or available in a compatible set), and not all of the atoms have the same number of holes (making it impossible to form certain compounds). Of course, you can switch which color atom represents which element for a particular model you're trying to make, but it's nice to stick to the same color, so you get used to seeing a certain color and know which element it is. All in all, very happy with the purchase---both the product and quick service!

Purchased this for my Organic Chemistry class, and ever since it arrived I've been assembling and disassembling molecule after molecule. This kit comes with a surplus of balls and springs, so it's even possible to make larger and more complex molecules.

These models are great for teaching the police departments about the molecules that they are looking for. They are just like the ones we used back in college and like them, are very effective at conveying the concepts. Well worth the price.Read More Reviews
