London Dispersion Force

Postby Claire_Kim_2F » Tue Nov 17, 2020 1:53 pm

Is LDF present in all intermolecular bonds it seems to be pretty common?

Yes, all molecules can have a momentary dipole, so they all have LDF. Nonpolar molecules are the only ones that have only LDF, while polar molecules can form Dipole-Dipole Bonds, and some can form Hydrogen Bonds.

Hope this helps!

Yes, like what Trisha said above, LDFs are present in all molecules.

Yep! All molecules have LDFs since LDFs are just caused by the movement of electrons in atoms/molecules and electrons move around in all molecules/atoms.

Yes, all molecules have LDFs as temporary dipoles are often formed.

yeah, LDFs are in everything
