This database is a collection of the molecular models used in some publications of the
Colina Research Group at the University of Florida.
Select a molecule by navigating the drop down menu below to obtain information
on the force field functional forms and parameters used in published articles. For each model,
you may download data files containing all necessary molecular modeling information.
If using any of the information provided in this database, please cite the corresponding paper,
as listed on the webpage for each model.

A naming scheme is used in this work for each united atom bead. The naming scheme used is:
[element]: the chemical element of the atom
[type]: the chemical environment of the atom,
A = Aromatic, H = Tetrahedral, L = Linear, P = Trigonal
Planar, S = Shared Aromatic, K = Ketone
[hydrogens]: the number of bonded hydrogen atoms in the pseudo atom
For example, CH2 is a tetrahedral carbon unit atom bead with two associated hydrogens. An “L” preceding a
Linking atom type designates an atom being used in a Polymatic bonding step.
Detailed information for the format of LAMMPS data files may be found in the
documentation. The specific functional forms used in these data files are the following:
