Re: AMBER: RESP vs. AM1-BCC charges for isoprene

Rhonda,

I should have mentioned that the two methyl groups connected to the same
sp2 carbon had identical (resp) and very similar (am1bcc) charges. I did
generally include only the charge of one of all equivalent atoms.
The overall charge is 0 in both cases.
(There was a small typo though. The charge of the highlighted hydrogen
is 0.14, not 0.09 as specified first. Sorry!)

           AM1-BCC RESP

        H3 0.04 H3 0.10
        | |
        C -0.06 H 0.11 C -0.36 H 0.14 <<<< former error
         \ / \ /
   -0.12 C=====C -0.17 0.2 C=====C -0.26
         / \ / \
        C C -0.06 C C -0.24
        | | | |
        H3 H3 0.04 H3 H3 0.09

The attachment contains the mol2 output files for both molecules.

Thanks very much for your help!
