Help you do what? If you want to use MD as "proof" that pi-pi or cation-pi
interactions exist using those force fields, I'd say the answer is "no." It's
just not a physical phenomenon that additive models capture well.
If I could predict what reviewers would say about anything, I'd have a much
easier time with my papers. But as I said, making any sort of bold claims about
such interactions should rightfully draw scrutiny.
