Understanding how students untangle intermolecular forces: Discover how learners use electronegativity to predict the location of dipole−dipole interactions

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article

Abstract

Many students struggle to understand intermolecular forces. A US study looked at how students predict the location of dipole−dipole forces between two molecules – the challenges they face, the errors they make and how they can gain understanding. Use the evidence from the article and the teacher-tested tips to deepen your students’ understanding of this key chemistry topic.
