The Ih point group is represented by the C60 buckyball-fullerene. This image is included for reference only since parts for this structure is not included. You would need to buy 60 extra trigonal atoms & 90 extra 30mm bonds to build this model; see Related Products below.
Compare this structure to the D5h symmetry of the C70 fullerene model.

This model set has the flexibility needed to teach symmetry point groups effectively, as well as modeling metal coordination complexes. Some atoms have holes perpendicular to their main bonds, allowing for modeling H-bonds or electrostatic interactions. Construction-wise, atoms pieces are smaller relative to the bond pieces, emphasizing the relative space taken up by orbitals compared to nuclei. However, this can also make it difficult to change molecular structure quickly. Indigo Instruments customer service was also very helpful in processing my order quickly and completing forms required by my institution for requisition.
Thanks for the feedback. It is an unusual set & the only one we know of that can build ferrocene.
