Hi Jenny,

Aqvist’s Mg2+ parameters are available in AMBER. For example, you can find the vdW parameters of Mg2+ in the $AMBERHOME/dat/leap/parm/parm10.dat file with the atom type “MG”.

However, Aqvist’s parameters were published in 1990, so it has been a while. We have developed new ion parameters which are compatible with the particle mesh Ewald (PME) method. You can consult the section 3.6 of the AMBER manual for relevant information: <>.
