CCL:G: Lone pair location

Sent to CCL by:
Hello Joaquin,

The location and strength of lone pairs can be very well described by the topographical analysis
of molecular electrostatic potential. Kindly refer to papers by S.R. Gadre and co-workers.
You may calculate the electrostatic potential over a grid surrounding the molecule using Gaussian
and view the isosurfaces for qualitative insights.

I would like to know about if exists any calculations in Gaussian09 that help me to locate or visualize lone pair electrons in order to assign the atom hybridation (O, S, N..). I tried with NBO analysis but I can't extract that information from it.

Thank you all.
