Intermolecular forces are the attractive and repulsive forces that act between molecules.
They can be classified as either van der Waals or ionic, but in this post we will focus on van der Waals forces. These types of intermolecular interactions are usually non-directional and occur when molecules have an affinity for one another because they have similar shapes, sizes, charges, or polarities.
This is a blog post about the different types of intermolecular interactions that exist between molecules; it also includes a table with some examples!

Ionic bonding occurs when atoms have an unequal number of protons so they attract one another via their positive or negative charges to form ions. Van der Waals forces occur when there are no such imbalances in charge but instead has favorable molecular shapes or sizes
