thank you for your suggestion, the PETRA server is very useful, because I don't
have access to other programs like InsightII that can calculate Gasteiger charges.
I have also to use total charges like you, because when I calculate sigma
charges the sum of them on the whole molecule is -0.5, for some reason not clear
to me (I guess because the other -0.5 is given by pi charges).
