The chemical formula of testosterone is C19H28O2. You can compare this molecular model and its tetracyclic ring structure to that of cholesterol, progesterone & cortisone. It is an anabolic steroid with ketone and hydroxyl functional groups at positions three and seventeen & is the primary sex hormone associated with biological males.
You can save money by building this molecular model of testosterone using the free Indigo ® 3D Molecular Model Builder as a guide. It can show you just the parts needed to build this chemical structure or suggest a molecular model set such as our 62053SP ultimate organic chemistry molecular modelling set.
Or, buy the 68847W Class Organic Chemistry Molecular Model set. It comes with 200 sp3 carbons & can build up to 4 different models simultaneously. Compare structures of testosterone, cholesterol, progesterone, androstenedione, estrone & estradiol.
