The secondary force is again subdivided into Keesom force, Debye force, and London dispersion force, which is much larger than the other two Van der Waals forces.
Thus, the literature shows that the GM method is suitable for the dispersion forces, and possibly, too, for some polar forces (Debye and Keesom forces); the method is not recommended for hydrogen bonding [32, 43].
