My group works with the bicarbonate and similar anions in the context
of CO2 chemisorption.

You must exercise serious caution to assign correct electrostatic
potential at the surface of the anion and account for
hydration/solvation effects within the force field derivation

I have a PDB and TOP file prepared using PRODRG for the HCO3- but I'm not sure if the OPLS-AA force field is suitable for this molecule.
