Hi, lammps-users,

I need to put K+(H2O)6 and Ni2+(H2O)6 in a water box and do some dynamics.
The force field used is UFF, and I fit Ni and K parameter according to literature (Addicoat, M. A.; Vankova, N.; Akter, I. F.; Heine, T., Extension of the universal force field to metal–organic frameworks. Journal of chemical theory and computation 2014, 10 (2), 880-891.).

If put K+(H2O)6 or Ni2+(H2O)6 in a empty box and do minimize, then the structure maintains steady.
If put Ni2+(H2O)6 in a water box and do minimize, the structure maintains steady, too. 
But If put K+(H2O)6 in a water box and do minimize,  K+(H2O)6 turns distorted after minimization.
I don't know why, the only thing different here is the bond length of Ni-O(~2.0A) is much short than K-O(~2.7A).
please give me some advice.

​my advice is: you need to talk with your adviser!
what you are asking is about your research and not about LAMMPS.​
