Last year I converted the Lennard-Jones parameters for manganese(2+)
from the MM3 force field to something Gromacs could use. My conversion
is available in the gmx-users archive:
along with a verification I did on calcium(2+) ions:
I have used these parameters in a protein simulation. I do not think
they are very critical in this context, and the structure of the metal
binding site is stable throughout the simulation and matches everything
I read about it.
If you could find similar parameters for Ce(III), maybe you could
do an analogous conversion.
