PSS and PDADMA polyelectrolytes

(provided by Jens Smiatek, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Parameter files for PSS, poly(styrene sulfonate), and PDADMA, poly(diallyldimethylammonium), with 30 monomers. Also includes the Martini 2.2P parameter file including polystyrene beads (martini_v2.2P_PS.itp)


An example application to simulate an equilibrated PSS/PDADMA mixture including ions and water with all necessary parameter files.

Furthermore, a free program to generate topology files for arbitrarily long PSS or PDADMA chains can be found at:
