Description

The Molymod® VSEPR (Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion) set can be used to make a considerable number of molecules but in particular to make models to display at least 14 VSEPR structures. It is ideal for learning about the basics of molecular shape. You can make models that represent linear, trigonal planar, tetrahedral, trigonal bipyramidal, and octahedral shapes. Coloured links represent electron-pair bonds (single, double, and triple) and lone-pair electrons.

  • Atom parts are made of solid coloured plastic spheres.
  • They are available with from 1 – 6 holes in the usual angular orientations.

Contents of the VSEPR molecular models kit

The contents are contained within a sturdy plastic storage box.

Atoms

Enough central atoms are included to make the following models

  • metallic grey atom, 2 hole, linear, for instance beryllium in BeCl2
  • yellow atom, 3 hole, trigonal, for instance sulfur in SO3
  • black atom, 4 hole, tetrahedral, for instance carbon in CH4
  • yellow atom, 4 hole, tetrahedral, for instance sulfur in SO32-
  • red atom, 4 hole, tetrahedral, for instance oxygen in H2O
  • light green atom, 4 hole, tetrahedral, for instance fluorine in HF
  • light brown atom, 5 hole, trigonal bipyramidal, for instance phosphorus in PCl5
  • yellow atom, 5 hole, trigonal bipyramidal, for instance sulfur in SF4
  • green atom, 5 hole, trigonal bipyramidal, for instance chlorine in ClF3
  • purple atom, 5 hole, trigonal bipyramidal, for instance xenon in XeF2
  • grey atom, 6 hole, octahedral, for instance metal complexes
  • brown atom, 6 hole, octahedral, for instance bromine in BrF5
  • copper atom, 6 hole, octahedral, for instance copper complexes

Bonds

  • 50 medium links (grey, single bonds)
  • 15 medium links (purple, to represent lone pairs)
  • 6 short links (white)

Tool

  • 1 tool (used for disassembling models containing short link bonds)

The Molymod® system is the original, unique, dual-scale system of high quality low-cost molecular models. These enormously popular sets are ideal for college use 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 aid only, and consequently are not suitable for children less than 10 years of old.
