Orbit Molecular Model Sets

Orbit Molecular Model Sets

Versatile, Expandable, Affordable

The Best Buy of Molecular Models

Looking for affordability & versatility in a molecular model set? Cochranes of Oxford Orbit style offers both with student organic sets starting at $15.95.

Advanced & class sets have 24 & 200 sp3 carbons respectively with the latter costing just $119.95. All sets come with lone electron pair paddles for VSEPR theory.

Versatility doesn't just apply to chemistry, there is even an Orbit Crystal Lattices Class Set. It comes with 600 atoms to build ice, diamond, graphite, sodium chloride & more. It even includes the unique 8 & 12 coordinate atoms to build metal based structures.

Buy any set listed below for immediate delivery. Each & every one is backed by our complete inventory of spare parts for with 100% guaranteed compatibility.

  • Build structures for TCA & other cycles.
Instructions/Safety

Indigo® Wobbly™ bonds will last just about forever. However, the trade off is that they are very stiff on initial use & may be difficult to use for younger students. Try putting the bonds in your pocket or in the sun for a little while before using them, this should loosen them up enough.
