Induced Dipole-Induced Dipole names?

Postby Saleha_Mian_3E » Sat Nov 10, 2018 4:18 pm

Hi, I missed the slide where he mentioned the other names for Induced Dipole-Induced Dipole? I know that they are all explaining the same thing which explains that the fluctuating electron distribution which results in fluctuating dipoles.

I think the other names were London, Dispersion and Van Der Waals.
Hope this helps!

It was not clarified on the lecture but in the discussion, our TA cataloged it to diple-diple interactions.

An induced dipole is formed due to random electron movement. Sometimes, randomly, an electron cloud will form more on one side of a molecule than another, creating a temporary chance "induced dipole". This chance dipole then can induce a dipole in a neighboring molecule as it pushes or pulls electrons. Induced dipole-induced dipole interactions are really weak and always happening, but in nonpolar molecules, they are the only force between molecules.
