ReaxFF reactive force field for molecular dynamics simulations of hydrocarbon oxidation.

Atomistic modeling with ReaxFF provides a useful method for determining the initial events of oxidation of hydrocarbons under extreme conditions and can enhance existing combustion models.

Development of a Charge-Implicit ReaxFF Potential for Hydrocarbon Systems.

A modification to the ReaxFF potential for carbon and hydrogen is proposed that eliminates the time-consuming charge equilibration, eliminates the acknowledged flaws of the electronegativity equalization method, includes an expanded training set for condensed phases, has a repulsive wall for simulations of energetic particle bombardment, and is compatible with the LAMMPS code.

Thermodynamically consistent force fields for the assembly of inorganic, organic, and biological nanostructures: the INTERFACE force field.

The INTERFACE force field operates as an extension of common harmonic force fields by employing the same functional form and combination rules to enable simulations of in organic-organic and inorganic-biomolecular interfaces and increases the transferability of the parameters by introducing thermodynamic consistency.

ReaxFF: A Reactive Force Field for Hydrocarbons

To make practical the molecular dynamics simulation of large scale reactive chemical systems (1000s of atoms), we developed ReaxFF, a force field for reactive systems. ReaxFF uses a general

All-atom empirical potential for molecular modeling and dynamics studies of proteins.

The results demonstrate that use of ab initio structural and energetic data by themselves are not sufficient to obtain an adequate backbone representation for peptides and proteins in solution and in crystals.

ReaxFF-lg: correction of the ReaxFF reactive force field for London dispersion, with applications to the equations of state for energetic materials.

ReaxFF is extended by adding a London dispersion term with a form such that it has low gradients (lg) at valence distances leaving the already optimized valence interactions intact but behaves as 1/R(6) for large distances to improve the descriptions of the phase diagrams for other energetic materials.

Force Field for Mica-Type Silicates and Dynamics of Octadecylammonium Chains Grafted to Montmorillonite

A hybrid high-level-low-level quantum method that combines DFT with dispersion for the full periodic system with second order Møller-Plesset perturbation theory (MP2) for the reaction site within a mechanical embedding scheme is shown to yield chemical accuracy for a set of 12 molecule-surface interaction systems for which reliable experimental data are available.
