Dimers

Postby Andrew Pfeiffer 2E » Mon Nov 11, 2019 9:51 am

I was reading through the textbook, and the subject of dimers briefly came up in 3F.5. The only description of dimers here is "pairs of identical molecules", but this feels a little obscure, since there are lots of pairs of identical molecules. Can someone clear up what a dimer is more specifically? Thanks.

A dimer would be two monomers that are linked together by intermolecular or covalent bonds and/or interactions.
