since I am interested in this topic, too, but without having used your
interface yet: I guess the question is where do the nonpolar hydrogens
(which usually are missing in GROMOS united atoms ff, so you cannot
put them in the [QM] index group) come from when switching from MM to
QM? Are they added e.g. from geometric criteria by your interface or
CPMD (I guess not), are they just ignored (definitely not) or do one
has to generate an all-atom QM part of the system in the first place
(i.e. coordinates and topology; I guess this is the case)? That would
mean a mixture of united- and all-atom ff.
