NoWe describe the work of the European project QUASI (Quantum Simulation in Industry, project EP25047) which has sought to develop a flexible QM/MM scheme and to apply it to a range of industrial problems. A number of QM/MMapproaches were implemented within the computational chemistry scripting system, ChemShell, which provides the framework for deploying a variety of independent program packages. This software was applied in several large-scale QM/MM studies which addressed the catalytic decomposition of N2O by Cu-containing zeolites, the methanol synthesis reaction catalysed by Cu clusters supported on ZnO surfaces, and the modelling of enzyme structure and reactivity
