A giant molecular model kit comprising carbon tetrahedra , white bonds and hydrogen atoms

 

 

 

 

Giant molecular models made with Miramodus kits

Molecules made with one of our giant model kits. The pyrrolidinol molecule is approximately 1 metre across.

 

 

 

 

 

Giant Molecular Model Components

 

 

Below are example prices for the most common giant molecular model balls that we supply. We can, however, provide balls with any reasonable geometry (interbond angles are limited to approximately 25 degrees) - please contact us if what you want isn't listed below.


The balls in our giant molecular models incorporate sockets that the rods fit on to, just as with miniature model kits. Unlike most model kits, though, the contents of your set of balls and rods are entirely up to you - you only have to buy what you need to use. Tell us what colour balls you want - the balls are professionally painted to give a robust finish that will last for years and survive use. Bond lengths are cut to suit your requirements - we just need you to tell us how many bonds and what bond geometry you want for each ball and we do the rest.

 

Balls with only single bonds are supplied as individual units; balls with multiple bonds (C=C, C=N, C=O, etc.) are supplied only in pairs (or higher multiples in the case of, for example, allenes). Example prices are as below, but please don't hesitate to contact us via our web form or via email if you want something very specific that isn't shown.

 

Magnetic couplings are particularly suited to group activities involving children, whereas we normally suggest plain couplings that can be glued into position for permanent displays, and particularly for models that are to be suspended from ceilings.
