Molecular electron densities are generated at B3LYP/6-311+G(2d,p)//HF/6-31G(d) level for 57 molecules, including one conformation of each naturally occurring amino acid and smaller derived molecules. The electron densities are partitioned into atomic fragments according to the approach of quantum chemical topology (QCT). A set of 547 unique topological atoms is obtained, containing 421 hydrogens, 63 oxygens, 57 nitrogens and 6 sulfurs. Each atom is described by seven properties: volume, kinetic energy, monopole, dipole, quadrupole, octupole and hexadecapole moment. Cluster analysis groups atoms into atom types based on their similarity expressed in the discrete 7D space of atomic properties. Using a separation criterion we distinguish seven hydrogen, six oxygen, two nitrogen and six sulfur atom types.
