2Structure in solutionExample: protein structure in solutionStructure is due to balance of intramolecular (e.g. alpha helices, beta sheets) and intermolecular interactions (e.g. solvent, salts.)Vastly more complex system than gases!!!Will revisit molecular structure in spectroscopy lectures (X-ray and NMR)
3Intermolecular interactionsMany types of intermolecular forces (IMFs) can be distinguished:
