Van der Waals Surface

Plot of the van der Waals surface of various molecules. The van der Waals surface of a molecule is represented by treating each atom as a sphere with the van der Waals radius. Covalently bonded polyatomic molecules will be smaller than the sum of van der Waals surfaces due to the overlap of intersecting spheres.
