Van der Waals Force

 

Any of several intermolecular attractive forces not resulting from ionic charges

Source

Any of several intermolecular attractive forces not resulting from ionic charges; in this volume, only London dispersion forces are described by this name. Descriptions of the potential energy of nonbonded interactions follow the convention of expressing van der Waals attractive forces and overlap repulsion forces as a single van der Waals potential.

Attractive or repulsive forces between neutral atoms and molecules. They can be divided in forces between particles with and without permanent dipoles. Atoms and molecules without a permanent dipole moment attract each other through fluctuating dipole moments (dispersion forces or London dispersion forces). Van der Waals forces between particles with a permanent dipole moment can be either attractive or repulsive. Named after J.D. van der Waals, 1837-1923.
