The tetrahedral sp3 carbon atoms are used in every Orbit molecular model sets & kits involving organic molecules. You can buy these atoms separately to build millions of custom models using our 3D Molecular Model Builder. Set the "style" in Orbit basic or advanced to see it as depicted in model sets listed below.

The uniqueness of carbon comes from the fact that it can bond to itself in many different ways; in straight chains, branched chains and rings. It can also bond singly, doubly and triply to itself. The chemical basis of all living organisms is linked to the way that carbon bonds with itself and other atoms 1.

Carbon is such a versatile element that almost 10 million (known) different carbon compounds exist 2. We include 16 sp3 carbons in our economical Foundation/Basic Organic Chemistry Modelling Set & 24 in our Advanced Student Organic Chemistry Molecule Building Set.


You can use these Genuine Cochranes of Oxford Orbit Molecular Model Parts to replace missing pieces or augment any of the Orbit Molecular Model Sets & Molecular Model Kits supplied by Indigo Instruments.

Excellent ORBIT atomic models !!! ( I have also the Ball and Stick MOLYMOD models and the Spacefilling CPK models but they are too LARGE and you can make only small molecules with them...) With the ORBIT molecules you can make LARGE molecules with a lot of pieces!!!...
