intermolecular force

[‚in·tər·mə′lek·yə·lər ′fōrs]
(physical chemistry)
The force between two molecules; it is that negative gradient of the potential energy between the interacting molecules, if energy is a function of the distance between the centers of the molecules.

Nonbonded interactions involve attraction and repulsion of atoms due to the overlap of their electron shells.
This new server reduces processing time of molecular dynamics (*1) simulation with a dedicated computation board "MD Engine(R)"(*2) that processes time-consuming computation, nonbonded interactions at high speed.
Simulation time has been dramatically reduced by an embedded "MD Engine(R)," a dedicated computation board for high-speed computation of nonbonded interactions such as coulomb force and intermolecular force that account for more than 99% in many cases of molecular dynamics simulation.
