The example below illustrates dipole property QM/MM DFT/B3LYP calculation for quantum water molecule embedded into 20 angstrom box of classical SPCE/E water molecules.

The preparation stage that involves definition of the QM region and solvation is performed as part of the calculation. Note that water fragment file wtr.frg is required in this calculation. Prepare run will generate restart file (wtr_ref.rst) and topology file (wtr.top)

In the QM/MM interface block the use of bq_zone value of 3.0 Angstrom is specified.


  start wtr
  permanent_dir ./perm
  scratch_dir ./data
  prepare
  source wtr0.pdb
  new_top new_seq
