Re: [AMBER] How to print out implicit solvent charges?

Thanks for the quick reply. Isn’t the implicit solvent evaluated at specific points in space? I was thinking of the xyz associated with those grid or cavity points at which the implicit solvent is evaluated, and the charges at those points. Or, are the implicit solvent models different in implementation than the picture I have from apparent surface charge or polarizable continuum models in QM calculations?

Asked another way, is there a way to save the representation of the implicit solvent as a charge distribution?
