1/25/2011 2 Atoms have an effective interaction distance, the van der Waals radius . It is the sum of attractive forces, typically dispersion, and repulsive forces as outer orbital overlap. This is the “6-12” potential field. Atom/ group vdw radius ( Å ) H 1.2 C 1.7 O 1.4 N 1.5 -CH3 2.0 ½ Ar 1.7 Atoms Bond length ( Å ) C-H 1.09 C-C 1.54 C=C 1.34 C-O 1.43 C-N 1.47
