Subject: [AMBER] Partial charges of heme

Dear AMBER users,
I would like to know the procedure used to calculate partial charges for the
heme residue. Specifically, I am interested in what basis set was used to
describe the iron atom in the heme when generating the ESP from a QM

I assume this information is included in Giammona, DA, *Ph.D. thesis,
University of California, Davis (1984)*
Unfortunately I do not have easy access to the thesis.
Please Advise,
