So big?? in relation to what??? Energy is an extensive variable, so it
depends on the number of pairs used to calculate interaction energy, or the
interface area. And how they correlate with experimental values?? are you
talking about Free energy of interaction? From my Knowledge the free energy
of interaction cannot be obtained from the interaction energy alone, maybe
that is why you think energy values are so high.
