1. 2. Static Effects of the Interaction The van der Waals interaction is responsible for one type of chemical bond, called van der Waals' bond. The forces that produce this bond are the weakest, but probably the most universal. 4 eV), and 6 are generally masked by the stronger covalent forces which are present in molecules and are associated with stronger energies of about 100 kilocal/mole (~ 4eV). The role of van der Waals' forces is important in explaining the bond between molecules and atoms with saturated orbitals, where no covalent bonding is possible.

We can make the following observations: (1) The sum ^ is over all the electrons of the unfilled 3d (transition metal ions) or 4f (rare earth ions) shells. For each couple of electrons we have a parameter (jsl) = matrix element of Jst taken between the angular parts of the orbital wavefunctions. (2) The number of independent (jsl) parameters is reduced if the symmetry is high. C) (4) (Jst) depends exponentially on R, for large R. If all the orbitals have the same asymptotic radial e'rl'° (r0 = effective Bohr radius), then (Hexch) ~ e~2R,r° in the limit of large R.

For the direct term these distributions are localized at the sites of the two atoms; for the exchange term the two distributions are strongly affected by the distance between the two atoms, and, of course, become very small for large distances. If the overlap between the wavefunctions of the two atoms is small, then the electric multipolar part can be treated as previously. If all the orbitals have the same asymptotic radial dependence, then the matrix element of the exchange term of two atoms at distance R from each other will have a dependence ~exp(-2R/ro).
