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 Bond Types

Basic Bonds

Orbit Bonds
20mm grey bonds for hydrogen; 30mm for C-C, C-O, etc.  35mm thick grey for cyclohexane chair-boat, larger atomic radii.
 

Orbit Foundation Basic Sets:

  • Foundation (Basic) set is ideal for 1 or 2 courses.
  • Builds important organic & some biomolecules.
  • Bonds can wear out but lots are provided.
  • Thick 35mm bonds for cyclohexane chair-boat flips.
  • Lone pair electron "paddles" for VSEPR theory.

Flexible Bonds

20mm bonds hydrogen, 30mm for C-C, C-O, etc. 35mm for C-C double & triple bonds or larger atomic radii such as P.
 

Orbit Flexible ("Wobbly") Bond Sets:

  • Advanced Set builds many more structures than Basic.
  • Class Set builds many more structures than Advanced. 
  • 4 lengths of bonds for better scale representation.
  • "Wobbly" bonds are clear vinyl, indefinite number of uses.
  • Thick 35mm bonds for cyclohexane chair-boat flips.
  • Lone pair electron "paddles" for VSEPR theory.
  • All Orbit Lattice Structure kits use these bonds.

"X-Peg" + Bonds

X-peg inserts used with hole in trigonal carbon and divalent oxygen atoms, etc. to allow for a flattened ring.
