        Hello all, this is the problem. We are preparing a system for MD
simulations. This system contains one metallic atom, Aluminum and we do
not have parameters for it (in particular van der Waals parameters). We
need to know a reliable procedure to obtain these parameters from
quantum chemistry computations or other methods. Your help will be
really appreciated.
