Subject: AMBER: amber ff and how it deals with out-plane chiral C

Hi List!

I've read "here and there" that Amber FF doesn't use improper
dihedrals parameters for tetrahedral carbon (out-of plane) and for
that a set of torsionals would do the parametrisation.

Disregarding some likely wrong assertions above, where would I find
further information about this particularity in amber ff? I failed to
find that in Amber manual 10.

Many thanks in advance.
