A good way to understand the complex structures and mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 is from the perspective of chemistry. The basic components, structures, and replication processes of SARS-CoV-2 are described in a firstperson perspective to elucidate the essential role of intermolecular forces in living organisms.

Key words: SARS-CoV-2, Intermolecular forces, Self-assembly, Hydrophilic, Hydrophobic
