London Dispersion Forces result from Induced Dipole-Induced Dipole, during which electrons on two nearby atoms of different molecules are temporarily located in a given portion of the atom causing that atom to adopt a temporary positive or negative charge, with this positive or negative charge leading to attraction to an atom on another molecule which adopts the opposite charge for the same reason.

Most, if not all, molecules have London Dispersion forces because they are caused by momentary interactions from electrons.

It's the attraction between instantaneous dipoles on neighboring molecules and acts between all types of molecules

LDF are also van der waals forces.
