Force parameters from QM-summary

 Dear CCL Users,
 I would like to thank for information about the evaluation of force
 parameters from QM calculations and PAPQMD program.
 Here are the answers:

   abstract = {A consistent force field for the simulation of protonated
     aluminosilicates is presented. It has been developed on the basis of
     ab initio calculations on molecular models following a method proposed
     in a previous paper (J. Phys. Chem. 1994, 98, 1238). The molecular models
     consist of SiO4 and protonated AlO4 tetrahedra connected to chains, rings,
     and cages. The ab initio calculations used a ''double-zeta plus
     polarization'' basis set on the Si, Al, and H atoms and a ''triple-zeta
     plus polarization'' one on the O atoms. The calculated structures of the
     finite models yield a structural model of Bornsted acidic sites which is
     consistent with observed data but more complete than models derived from
     experiments. Compared with these ab initio results the derived force field
     predicts reasonable structures for aluminosilicates, but the errors are
     larger than the errors that our all-silica potential yielded for all-silica
     polymorphs. A new method is proposed for calculating the atomic charges as
     a function of the structure, and the corresponding potential results in
     better structure predictions. The force field is applied to the calculation
     of the local structures of different bridging hydroxyl groups in faujasite,
     and it is shown that results of the same accuracy as with a shell model
     potential are obtained. The predictions for a H-faujasite (Si/Al = 2.43)
     are consistent with mean bond distances and angles deduced from neutron
     diffraction data.}
 Hope this helps ... Best regards,
