This paper describes work-in-progress towards developing grid portal for quantum mechanics (QMWISE) featuring real-time 3D visualization. The goal of QMWISE project is to provide a powerful and convenient system for computational chemistry using grid technologies. In this paper, we propose an environment which enables computational chemists to calculate quantum mechanics problems and explore the result data through interactive real-time 3D visualization.
