We reproduced the simulations described in Wang et al. (2018) and found we could not obtain the results reported. The root cause was identified to be incorrect atom masses in the original simulation files. As a consequence, the potential does not reproduce the experimental glass density - and presumably, other structural properties - and should be considered with great caution.
