This kit can build a trisaccharide model of starch, an important natural polymer which consists of long chains of glucose monosaccharide molecules.
Starch consists of three alpha; D-glucose subunits. Note that the positioning of the hydrogens is somewhat random. The model also forms an arc when held around the middle which illustrates the fact that starch in nature forms a loose coil.You can also build similar models in the Orbit style with our 68799W Glucose Molecule Structure Models Kit.
