Using three-dimensional (3D) graphing and molecular modeling softwares, the procedures for presenting the VRML 3D wave functions have been discussed. The interactivities of VRML can help students to observe the characters of wave functions intuitively, which also improve the teaching results of quantum chemistry and electronic structures effectively.

Key words: Wave functions, Three-dimensional (3D), VRML, Structural chemistry
