ChemStores will be selling molecular model kits this fall. The kits are an excellent study aid, making it much easier to visualize complex three-dimensional molecular structures.┬áThe Foundations basic organic chemistry molecular model kit (shown above) has been approved by the course instructors. This kit includes all the parts required to build the structures in the undergraduate chemistry courses (see below for a complete parts list). These kits are available at ChemStores for $18.00, making them a cheaper alternative to other kits that are available to undergraduate students. In addition, ChemStores has a second kit of higher quality with more durable parts (the “Molymod”┬ámolecular model kit). We are however, phasing this more expensive kit out; if you are interested in buying the higher quality kit, stop by ChemStores early before our stock runs out.
