Sorry, no etymologies found.
"intermolecular" (and how do you have "intermolecular forces" if you have a gas which isn't molecules, but I digress: -).
When the 28mer came up, a new intermolecular interface had to be formed to attach the alpha to the beta ring.
This research has resulted in the development of accurate intermolecular potential models for polar fluids, such as ammonia, that include three body interactions.
A number of physical and chemical properties of the intermolecular interfaces are calculated and compared with those observed in protein-double-stranded DNA and protein-single-stranded DNA complexes.
Although spin plays a role, intermolecular forces are electrical forces, the repulsion of the negatively charged electrons for each other and their attraction to the positive nuclei, as well as the mutual repulsion of the nuclei.
This new RNA species exhibits a deletion in the catalytic core and participates in a productive intermolecular interaction with an active ribozyme, thus insuring its survival in the population … This interaction hints at the complexity that may inevitably arise even in simple evolving systems.
Experimental evolution of complexity: in vitro emergence of intermolecular ribozyme interactions.
There is another possibility within the properties of carbon nanotubes to act as the first intermolecular logic gate.
The CDK's fingerprinter is used to describe intermolecular similarity, by calculating the Tanimoto distances between the bit strings.
This result suggests that the…substitution may…relieve an inherent steric hindrance to intermolecular association….
