We are presenting a virtual reality environment based on X3DOM technologies and aimed for enabling a researcher in the Molecular and Matter Sciences to set up the initial conditions of a simulation to be performed using the Dl-Poly software, through a virtual environment implemented in X3D. After having completed the definition of the molecular system to be studied in a very intuitive and user friendly way, the user can write out the Dl-Poly input files. In this way the crucial phase of the initial set up of the simulation is simplified and can be performed in a short time. Even if some technological drawbacks have been experienced in the current X3DOM implementation, we are confident that this approach, which definitely solves the "traditional" issues related to the compatibility among different web browser (plugins) and operating systems, represents an highway for the diffusion of X3D technologies in several application fields.
