Van der Waals strain
In chemistry van der Waals strain is strain resulting from van der Waals repulsion when two substituents in a molecule approach each other with a distance less than the sum of their van der Waals radii. Van der Waals strain is also called van der Waals repulsion and related to steric hindrance. One of the most common forms of this strain is eclipsing hydrogen, in Alkanes.
