Hi Madhurima,

I believe that for estimating partial charges, parameters, etc.,
antechamber works for single ligands. If you include more than one
molecule in the MOL2 file, antechamber will be confused.

I think one approach that may work is to run antechamber with a single
CCL4 molecule, to get these parameters, and then create a system of
900 of them in tLeap. Think of it this way: you want partial charges
and parameters for CCL4 _as a species_, and then you might happen to
decide to simulate 900 of them, or 901 molecules, etc., later.
