Hi Ming,

First of all you need to compute the Electrostatic potential (using
population analysis of Merz-Kollman) using QM programs such as Gaussian or
GAMESS. Once you have the above said ESP points, you can do RESP using
Antechamber module of Amber. I believe that you want the three Fluorines
attached to each Carbon to be equivalent, in which case I think you want to
equivalence them during the second stage of RESP charge fitting.

Best Regards
