Abstract

The forces acting between atoms or molecules (regarded as stable aggregates of nuclei and electrons) are prevalently electric in origin. Other forces, such as gravitational, nuclear or magnetic forces, are negligible either because their intensity is sensibly smaller (as for the case of magnetic or gravitational forces) or because they are extremely short-ranged (as for nuclear forces) [1]. The intermolecular forces can be derived from a potential (the intermolecular potential) which can be defined in the Born-Oppenheimer approximation [2, 3], where the motion of the electrons is separated from the slow motion of the nuclei, and the molecular energy E(q) = Ee(q) + EN is studied for a given configuration q of the nuclei. E(q) defines a molecular potential surface, independent of the velocity of the nuclei, the latter moving so as to satisfy the nuclear wave equation
