The 8-6 Lennard-Jones potential (also known as the 6-8 potential) is a variant the more well known Lennard-Jones model. It is particularly useful for computing non-bonded interactions. The potential is given by (Eq. 4 in[1]):


  • is the intermolecular pair potential between two particles or sites
  • is the distance, , at which is a minimum.
  • is the well depth (energy)
