Why are LDFs everywhere?

Postby 005199750 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:58 pm

Are LDFs present in every single molecule in existence, or just most? Secondly, why do all of these molecules even have LDFs present?

All molecules have LDFs. They are forces of attraction that occur when electrons in adjacent atoms occupy positions that make the atoms form temporary dipoles. Molecules have LDFs to hold the molecules together.

Are there any exceptions where LDF does not occur in a molecule? From test 3 I was told that formaldehyde does not have London dispersion forces.
