Bogdan, I had found that a little while ago but was unable to find again so thankyou for pointing me to it again and writing it in the first place.
Jon, I hadn't found those file previously and they are consistent with what I have come up with independently so I guess that is a good sign. Out of interest do you use GLYCAM with GROMACS? It's something I have wanted to try but couldn't see a way to implement the different LJ scaling factors into GROMACS that seem to be required for systems with both carbohydrate and non-carbohydrate molecules.

There have been some efforts of trying to implement the 56Acarbo before,
and there are some files that you might want to take a look at in the
user contributions section on the Gromacs website. I think the files
there only delas with 1-4 glycosidic linkages, but I guess it should be
straightforward to extend it to other connections using the dihedral
types from the 56Acarbo paper. Anyway the files might come in handy for
you if you haven't dicovered them yet. I can't say anything about the
quality of the conversion though, since I haven't used those parameters
myself, but it seems they use the same approach as you do (and as I did
a couple of years ago trying to accomplish the same thing, but I swiched
to Glycam parameters before I finished the project). I guess the best
thing would be to try to get hold of single point energies from gromos
and compare them with your conversion.

Most of the modifications are straightforward except for some of the LJ parameters. As well as simple adjustments to most of the 1-4 interaction parameters there is a requirement to implement a) some 1-4 interaction parameters when the 2 and 3 atoms are specific combinations and b) some 1-5 special parameters.
