Dear Nag,

You could try to do the same as Balazs and Tamas did with POPC membranes
(use the gaff force field via antechamber and RESP charge derivation).
Of course you would need to test the procedure carefully for DOPC. An
alternative is to look back at some older united atom ff for DOPC. Such
parameters are described for POPC by Jung-Hsin Lin, N. Baker, and Andy
McCammon in the Biohysical Journal (2002). You could in principle use
the same methodology as they did to derive parms for DOPC. Of course,
extensive testing needed ....

This, if you want AMBER parameters ....

I certainly hope that future versions of AMBER will come with parameters
for diverse lipids. It is something that AMBER still lacks comparing to
other force fields. However, the gaff ff might be a good starting point ..

Cheers
vlad
