I am trying to get binding energies and heats of formation of a divalent copper binding to 4 sidechains in a protein. I have been doing QM/MM using PM7, but I'd like to get some opinions from more experienced computational biophysicists/chemists. For something like divalent copper, is it really worth treating my QM region with PM7? What results/values can I really trust from this? Or do you recommend a higher theory, like DFT, to apply to my QM region, even though that would slow down the computation significantly, but give better results?
