Hello, update here.

I think there is a possibility that the parmbsc1 force-field updated on the
gromacs website has some incorrect values.

In the parmbsc1 paper (https://www.nature.com/articles/nmeth.3658.pdf) they
say they use Na+ parameters from this paper (
http://aip.scitation.org/doi/pdf/10.1063/1.466363).

.        sigma (Å)    epsilon (kcal/mol)
Na+   2.350          0.1300

Here is what I find in the GROMACS force-field.

.        sigma (nm)    epsilon (kJ/mol)
Na+   0.2584        0.4184

I would like to directly contact the author, but I have no means at the
moment.

Best Regards,

Dan
