Hello,

I want to simulate a lipid bilayer where the lipids are selectively deuterated in certain positions. Of course I could just change the mass of hydrogen to deuterium but is that sufficient or do I also need to change other force field parameters such as bond energies or equilibrium distances?

Thanks for your time!

Just change the masses. And be sure to use SHAKE to constrain the "C-D" bond lengths.
