Abstract

The fashionable but stereotypic thinking on the concept of the so-called “hydrophobic bond” has been examined in light of criticisms raised by many scientists: Hildebrand, Shinoda, Israelachvili, and so on. The author's comments are given on the harmful influence of the concept of “hydrophobic bond” in chemistry and biochemistry. In my opinion, this concept can be considered as a myth in modern science.
