[gmx-users] Martini parameters for monoolein

  Dear Xavier,

I think I have figured out how to deal with the missing part. My problem 
was OH-C-C-OH construct which is the headgroup of monoolein. After some 
research, it looks like that it is parameterized based on ethanediol and 
has P4 type. The rest of the molecule I guess should be straightforward 
CG backbone plus CG tail beads. Can you comment on this?

Thank you,
