The 68812W Orbit molecular model kit can build 8 different models of water soluble vitamins including vitamin C, ascorbic acid.
Vitamin C, ascorbic acid, is a relatively simple molecule but its effects on human health are enormous. The best known ailment due to a lack of it is scurvy. This is rare in most cultures since ready access to fruits and vegetables has eliminated this problem.
This kit can build the water soluble essential vitamin C (ascorbic) but you can also construct it, along with other biomolecules, using our Class Biochemistry Set. Let our free on-line 3D Molecular Model Builder tool show you how it would look in "Orbit-X-peg" style.
Our advanced student organic chemistry set & class organic chemistry set can both build this vitamin chemical structure model. Use the 3D Molecular Model Builder to show you how the same molecular formula would look in "Orbit flexible" style.
