Dear Prof. Bálint

Thank you for your replying. my structure has C, N, O, and S atoms, I have
used conjugategradient driver and 10000 steps, as well as LBFGS driver and
5000. but the problem still not solve it. so I have a question: the
structure should have H atom? i.e I should add H atom to system or not.
