Dear Shaoqu Xie,
You should check your force-field parameters and water model, typically the limit for simulating aqueous salt solutions is ~0.5M. Take a quick search on the ACS publication webpage for more details (I currently don't have access at the moment to give you the exact citation).

Subject: [gmx-users] Why did the aggregate of salt happen when I used Gromacs to perform the simulation in 1.5 M KCl solution?
My molecular dynamics simulation was performed in 1.5 M KCl aqueous solution or 1.5 M KCl ethanol solution (v:v=1:1). The oplsaa force field and spc216.gro were used (300k,1bar). The results showed that KCl aggregated with 10 ns of simulation. Could you tell me why the aggregate of salt happened when I used Gromacs to perform the simulation in 1.5 M KCl solution. Is it meaningful to use Gromacs to simulate phase splitting induced by salting-out method? The aggregate was much more serious. Is Gromacs workable to simulate the salting-out of ethanol?
