I need a book dealing in particular with the intermolecular forces and, if possible, the diffusive processes. Someone knows an appropriate one?

"Intermolecular and Surface Forces" by Jacob Israelachvili. A new edition came out recently. This covers all the types of forces relevant at the molecular scale or nanoscale.
