2.2.4.     Hydrophobic interaction

Hydrophobic force is not a force, is an interaction of non-polar molecules like lipids which come close to each other only in presence of water. The hydrophobic force is a tendency of water molecules to form a bigger cage around the lipid molecules. The hydrophobic force does not exist without water. It is a tendency of water molecule only. Hydrophobic are generally non-polar molecules and have a long chain of carbon molecule which does not interact with water molecules.
