[gmx-users] Energy minimization problem in Choline Chloride+Urea mixture in Gromacs

 I am trying to simulate a mixture of Choline Chloride+Urea mixture with
33:67 ratio at 298 K. I have taken the force field of choline from this
paper :http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/jp404619x
chloride from http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/jp063901o
and urea from http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/jp030534x
During the minimization process Fmax < 200 but potential energy was quite
high~5.4465270e+04. And finally the simulation crushes.  I have used this
force field of urea previously which matches well with experimental data.
So I have tried with another force field of choline (
but exactly the same thing happens. I have also tried the freeze group
option. But the result is same. I built the box using packmol. I took the
initial box length 5nm.
