This glucose molecule structure kit includes enough parts to build 3 separate monosaccharide models of glucose, or a glucose and a disaccharide such as lactose, all for only $53.25, with genuine Molymod models.
Or, use this kit to build different enantiomers such as galactose or alpha and beta versions of D or L glucose to understand chirality in biomolecules. Use our 3D Model Builder to help you construct monosaccharides & disaccharides such as maltose, sucrose or lactose.
Glucose, chemical formula C6H12O6, is the most important monosaccharide (sugar) in terms of metabolism.
Glucose is a simple sugar that is arguably the most important carbohydrate for multicelled organisms on our planet. Its importance to cellular respiration cannot be overstated. It also forms the basic building block of disaccharides such as lactose and sucrose and complex glucose polymers (polysaccharides) such as glycogen, starch and cellulose and is involved in a wide variety chemical pathways and reactions.
You can also build similar models in the Orbit style with our 68799W Glucose Molecule Structure Models Kit.
Or, you can build any 6 carbon sugar ring with our AtoMag magnetic molecular model. Quickly change the position of any oxygen atom to show different structural isomers; magnetic hydrogens are optional. If you buy two, you can build any disaccharide.
