additionally to the remaks of Andreas there are some parameters in the
GROMOS force field G53a5/6 for the solvents you want to simulate (see
the original paper). A good read of chapter five of the manual and to
all the files in the $GMX/share/top directory should let you build those
models. Note there's also a decane.itp there, which uses the
Ryckaert-Bellemans potential (as in Berger lipids).
One comment on the chair to boat (or more exactly twist-boat)
transition, the enthalpy barrier has been estimated to ~ 10 kcal/mol by
ab initio and MM2 calculations. It is thus unlikely to observe any
transition within a few nanoseconds if you start from a chair
conformation at room temperature.

> Then you could try the gromacs program x2top to generate a topology, or the Prodrg2 server.
