Ethanol Molecular Model

Handmade in the U.S.

Painted 1-inch (2.5 cm) hardwood balls and stainless steel rods
or
Wood finish 1-inch (2.5 cm) hardwood balls with antiqued brass rods

Dimensions:  Height 3 inches (7.5 cm), Width 4 inches (10 cm), Depth 2.5 inches (6 cm)

Description:

This handmade model is an accurate representation of the molecular structure of ethanol, a.k.a. ethyl alcohol, ethyl hydrate, grain alcohol, spirit of wine, neutral spirits, aqua vitae, or just "alcohol." A scale of 1 Å = 25 mm (1 inch) is used.  (Magnified 250 million times.) The spoke between the two carbons is intentionally left loose to allow bond rotation.

Physical models have been used by chemists for almost two centuries for three-dimensional representation of atomic arrangements in molecules and crystals. Their use has declined in recent decades due to advancements in computer graphics, but their importance remains in providing tactile intuition, historical connection, and inspiration.

For purchase here or at Etsy (painted or wood grain) if you’d prefer.
