The dimensionless form of the van der Waals
interaction force between a sphere and a flat plate is approximated by (Suzuki et al.
The models were based on several molecular descriptors including LogP, van der Waals
surface area (VD[W.
It's all down to van der Waals
forces, but you knew that.

Passive uptake (not triggered by receptor-ligand interactions) may also occur by electrostatic, Van der Waals
, or steric interactions, subsumed under "adhesive interactions" (Rimai et al.
Rayon & Sordo  studied the nature of the interaction in donor- acceptor van der Waals
complexes of borontrifluoride with carbon monoxide and ammonia at the MP2/6-31G** level.
An interdisciplinary team of researchers, led by Autumn, later confirmed speculation that the gecko's climbing ability depends on van der Waals
forces, which are weak electrodynamic forces that operate over very small distances but bond to nearly any material.
Professor Antonia Kesel, head of the Bremen-based research group, said: 'One possible application of our research would be to develop Post-it notes based on the van der Waals
force, which would stick even if they got wet or greasy.

Adri Van der Waals
, Asia ballistics manager for Dutch firm DSM, sells more than $4 million worth of bullet-proof fibers to China each year.
Micro-bubbles are introduced which, by principles of van der Waals
force, attach to the floc and cause it to rise to the surface in the clarifier, where skimmer boards remove it to a sludge holding section.
