Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Spring 2011 1 Dipole-dipole Interactions • Hydrogen bonds are responsible for: – Protein Structure • Protein folding is a consequence of H-bonding. • DNA Transport of Genetic Information Roy A. Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Spring 2011 2 Dipole-dipole Interactions H 2 O Roy A. Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Spring 2011 3 Interactions involving non-polar molecules Dispersion forces (London forces) are intermolecular Dispersion forces (London forces) are intermolecular forces caused by the presence of temporary dipoles in molecules. Roy A. Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Spring 2011 4 Interactions involving non-polar molecules ` The strength of dispersion forces depends on the polarizability of the atoms or molecules involved molecules involved. ` Polarizability describes the relative ease ` Polarizability describes the relative ease with which an electron cloud is distorted by an external charge. ` Larger atoms or molecules are generally more polarizable than small atoms or more polarizable than small atoms or molecules. Roy A. Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Spring 2011 5 Interactions involving non-polar molecules Molar Mass and Boiling Points of Common Species.
