Have you looked at the information / forcefields for carbon nanotubes?

When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble
a nail.

	Subject: [gmx-users] fullerene topology
	I'm trying to either build or find topology files for
buckminster fullerene (C60).
	Does anyone know where I could find such files?
	If not, does anyone know of literature that would help me build
	I already have a pdb of the structure... I just need accurate
partial charges to build the topology file with.  Even then, I'm not
confident in how well this will model fullerene because I just read
	"C60 has a tendency of avoiding having double bonds within the 
	pentagonal rings which makes electron delocalisation poor, and  
	results in the fact that C60 is not "superaromatic". C60 behaves

	very much like an electron deficient alkene..."

	I greatly appreciate any help offered,
	thank you,
