Hydrophobic Interaction among Many Solute Particles

  • Arieh Ben-Naim


In the previous chapter we were concerned with the HI between two solute particles. This has been considered to be the first and most important step towards the full characterization and understanding of the phenomenon of HI. It should be remembered, however, that the problem of pairwise HI has been isolated as a single factor that contributes to the total “driving force” of very complex biochemical processes.
