Thanks very much for much for your help. The Carbon naotube issue is solved. I still have to figure out the polymers. Thanks for the info

These constitute of adding .nt2, .rtp. and .itp files to the /Gromacs/share/Gromacs/top directory (namely ffcntoplsaa.nt2, ffcntoplsaa.rtp and ffcntoplsaa.itp) and adding a line in the FF.dat file. I have done that and tried to execute x2top and I got the error:

I have asked this question before and I was advised to change some files accordingly but to be honest I am not really professional in that; I have asked someone who had a problem in the past but he did not know all the details because he ended up not using the modified force fields after all. Can anyone give me in details how to incorporate the residue "LIG" within the force field or let me know whom I can consult...A part of the pdb file with the residue LIG is:
