[gmx-users] Large Molecule Stability

The molecule is an atomistic kerogen (aromatic sheets with interbonded
oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur). I parameterized the molecule from OPLS and
created the topology with pdb2gmx by modifying the .rtp file. I have
rigorously minimized and checked all the bonds for accuracy. Can a
molecules size effect the nonbonded interactions within the molecule? i.e.
if the molecule is larger than the table limit of ~2.5nm?
Thanks for your help,

What is this molecule and how did you generate its topology? Size is not
an issue (580 atoms is not large at all) and we can't comment about charge
groups without knowing more about what you're doing. Charge groups are
sort of an antiquated notion, anyway.
