We study multifragmentation within the framework of a quantum molecular dynamics model using different binding energy formulae in the secondary algorithm; namely, the minimum spanning tree approach. A comparison of theoretical results with experimental data over a wide range of energy, mass and impact parameter is also presented. Our detailed analysis shows an insignificant difference of different binding energies when used at finite temperatures on the fragmentation pattern which, on the other hand, becomes significant when used for cold matter.
