The system thinks your residue is named "1" I think you can use the -rn
option to antechamber to get the name you want. My recommendation is to
use the mol2 format as output, rather than prepin: we are trying to retire
the prepin format, which is nonstandard and has lots of quirks.

This is the wrong syntax. You can type "help loadAmberPrep" at the tleap
command line to see what is correct.

As above, "BZ" does not exist in the list, but "1" does.
