[gmx-users] sugar force fields

Dear all,

I understand that most major force fields (charmm, opls, amber, gromos?...) 
come with parameters for sugars. I wonder:

1)  if any work has been done/published comparing
the accuracy of these different sugar force fields

2) Of the force fields that come with gromacs is there one
for which making sugar topologies is as straight forward as making 
topologies for amino acids, or if there is no such thing for which FF is 
making a sugar topology the least tedious?

BTW: I want to model simple sugar molecules, monomers,
dimers (no polymers)
