Giant Molecular Models for Static Displays


The majority of our giant molecular models are intended for use as static displays. The scales available are up to approximately 1Å=22cm, meaning that a simple benzene ring may be over a metre across. At that scale, these models are great for filling large spaces with something that is chemically or commercially interesting and dramatic. We can incorporate anchor points (including wire assemblies) into the models to allow you to hang them from a ceiling, and almost any additional feature that you could want can be included. Double, triple and quadruple bonds are all possible, as are attachments to show lone pairs or the delocalised pi-bonds in aromatic systems. If you want the flexibility to change your models, you can either opt for it to be made either in whole or in part using our giant molecular model kits.


How we deliver our giant molecular models

To keep delivery costs down, the models are normally supplied unassembled or part-assembled. In schools and universities, the assembly process can be a wonderfully engaging way to teach molecular structure to enthusiastic students. In industrial settings, the assembly can provide a welcome diversion from work or a chance for an entertaining team-bonding exercise. If you don't have time to assemble and hang the models yourself, though, we offer an on-site assembly service within the UK and EU (we're happy to travel further afield if you're happy to pay!)

We love our giant molecular models - and they even made it onto the Christmas list of one of the Guardian newspaper's science writers.
