Unfortunately, my recollection is that you can't do that. The adbf code is fundamentally built up from the QM/MM routines. My understanding (Teo can correct me) is that you can't have a QM/MM calculation with no QM atoms.  If it were possible, it might be doable to add the capability of force mixing with pure MM.

Because I have the MM parameters for this entire system, I would however like to do the reduced calculation entirely classically. The problem is that when I define the ion as QM, it gets automatically added to the core QM region and the reduced QM/MM calculation now includes the ion resulting in a QM calculation for it. The extended region is however correct.
