Thanks. I am going to look over it. But I was wondering is it possible  
to just simulate one molecule of sucrose (glucose+fructose) in water  
using any of the force fields by Gromacs? I realize I would have to  
add the parameters to the .rtp files, but as you mentioned that the  
force fields recognizes them as part of the larger polymer and so it  
doesn't take into account the missing atoms.
