Orbit Molecular Building System

Orbit Models are Economical and Versatile

Orbit Molecular Models

Orbit molecular models are economical and versatile. Our complete spare parts list can augment any set/kit or build custom structures.

Student Chemistry Model Sets

Chemistry students who need an economical kit for one or two years can get all they need for organic/inorganic chemistry with our 2 Orbit style student sets.

The basic Orbit organic chemistry molecular model set (68845NV) has everything general & organic chemistry & even VSEPR theory.. If you need to make more and bigger structures such as long chain alkanes, polymers or fatty acids, the Advanced organic chemistry model set is a bargain that comes with over 200 atoms and bonds.

Our 3D Model Builder can pick the best set for you or build custom models. Try it now, it's Free!

Orbit Foundation Basic Sets:

  • Foundation (Basic) set is ideal for 1 or 2 courses.
  • Builds all important organic structures & some biomolecules.
  • Bonds are inexpensive & will wear out but lots are provided.
  • Special double thick 35mm bonds for cyclohexane chair-boat flips.
  • Includes lone pair electron "paddles" for VSEPR theory.

Orbit Flexible ("Wobbly") Bond Sets:

  • Advanced Set builds a much wider variety of structures than Basic.
  • Class Set has more parts than advanced for building multiple versions at once.
  • Includes 4 different lengths of bonds for better scale representation.
  • "Wobbly" bonds are high quality, clear vinyl with indefinite number of uses.
  • Special double thick 35mm bonds for cyclohexane chair-boat flips.
  • Includes lone pair electron "paddles" for VSEPR theory.
  • All Orbit Lattice Structure models use these bonds.

Orbit X-peg ("Wobbly)" Bond Sets:

  • Includes special X-peg inserts for double-triple bonds
  • Allows for flat rings such as purine & pyrindines as used in our DNA model.
  • All Orbit Biochemistry model kits use this style
