The Molymod® graphite kit can be used to assemble an elegant model of graphite with 3 layers of carbon atoms each containing 15 atoms. The atom parts are made of high quality attractive solid plastic spheres.
Contents of the Molymod® graphite kit
The contents are contained within a sturdy plastic storage box (235 x 170 x 35 mm) and includes a brief instruction leaflet.
- 45 carbon atoms (23 mm diameter, 5-hole, black)
- 51 medium links (grey, medium, single bonds)
- 16 long links (purple)
The medium links are used to join the atoms to form a hexagonal network and the longer purple links to join the layers. The Molymod system is the original, unique, dual-scale system of high quality low-cost molecular models. These enormously popular sets are ideal for students but are also used by scientists all over the world.
Important notice: Molymod® atomic and molecular model products are not toys! They are intended for use as a scientific educational and visualization aid, and consequently are not suitable for children less than 10 years old.
