IM Forces

Do all compounds have London Forces no matter what?

Yes, because london forces are due to random fluctuations of electron density where there is an unequal distribution of electrons on one side of a molecule. All molecules are subject to this random fluctuation.

Yes, every compound has London Dispersion Forces due to random electron movement that creates temporary positively charged and temporarily negatively charged regions that lead to electrostatic interactions. The larger the mass of the compounds, the stronger the forces.

The proof that all compounds, even nonpolar ones, have IMFs is that nonpolar compounds can be liquefied.
