Right! Sorry, my mistake. Obviously it was me who didn't use it for anything else.

You can use the element keyword in the “fix reax/c/species” command to change the element types. Particularly for your input script it would be “element Pt C H O”.  See for more info.

Hi Danny,

Hi everyone

I am doing some research about the Pt catalyst. The data file contains Pt cluster, benzene and oxygen. Something goes wrong when i calculate. First, the benzene broke into atoms immediately.

You should put atom types in your pair_style command in the same order as in data file. In your example, C H O Pt. Please see . The same is valid for dump_modify command. Start with that and see if everything still "goes wrong".


Second, i output the species using reax/c/species command. But the species contain no Pt atoms, the Pt atoms turn out to be "C" in the output file.


Yeah, the fix was made for C/H/O/N. Not a very flexible solution, but it seems no one ever needed it for anything else :) You may want to modify the code.





The force field i use is Pt/Ni/C/H/O force field 2016.
