There are two definitive references for the CHARMM force-field:

  author = {B. R. Brooks and R. E. Bruccoleri and B. D. Olafson
            and D. J. States and S. Swaminathan and M. Karplus},
  title =  {CHARMm: A Program for Macromolecular Energy,
            Minimization, and Dynamics Calculations.},
  journal= {J. Comput. Chem.},
  volume = 4,
  number = 2,
  pages =  {187-217},
  year =   1983

The details specific to the CHARMM, version 22 parameterization can be found

              Appendix contains the full specification tables for CHARMM-22.

              produced via image scans, so unfortunately contain no textual
              data.  Some OCR technique may be able to automatically extract
              the data.}
