Floating Squares  
Graphite (from a pencil lead) is applied to one side of an index card and a piece of the card is immersed in a beaker containing hexane and water (two layers). The graphite-coated side always faces the hexane layer. When the two liquids are carbon tetrachloride and water the graphite-coated side always faces the carbon tetrachloride.

Dancing Crystals: A Dramatic Illustration of Intermolecular Forces  Donald W. Mundell
Crystals of naphthalene form on the surface of an acetone solution and dance about in an animated fashion illustrating surface tension, crystallization, and intermolecular forces. Additional experiments reveal the properties of the solution and previous demonstrations of surface motion are explored.

Getting Physical with Your Chemistry: Mechanically Investigating Local Structure and Properties of Surfaces with the Atomic Force Microscope  William F. Heinz and Jan H. Hoh
The atomic force microscope is an extremely powerful and versatile tool for probing the chemistry, material properties, and dynamics of surfaces and interfaces at the nanometer and picoNewton scale in a samples native environment. A description of the main components of current instruments, including cantilevers and their design, is presented, along with the modes of operation, origin of contrast, and factors which contribute to the spatial resolution.

A section of ChemPrime, the Chemical Educations Digital Library's free General Chemistry textbook.
Noncovalent Interactions
Intermolecular Forces (Netorials)  Rachel Bain, Mithra Biekmohamadi, Liana Lamont, Mike Miller, Rebecca Ottosen, John Todd, and David Shaw
Intermolecular Forces: this is a resource in the collection "Netorials". In this resource there is a review of Lewis structures, molecular geometry, electronegativity, or molecular polarity. After that, you can learn about the forces of attraction that exist between molecules. This module explores London forces and dipole-dipole forces (including hydrogen bonds). The Netorials cover selected topics in first-year chemistry including: Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry, Thermodynamics, Intermolecular Forces, Acids & Bases, Biomolecules, and Electrochemistry.

Electrostatics Attraction (GCMP)  David M. Whisnant
Electrostatics Attraction: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". In this problem we will correlate molecular polarity with the attraction of liquids to a charged rod. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
