Energy changes associated with some decomposition steps of 1,3,3-trinitroazetidine. A non-local density functional study Academic Article uri icon


  • A non-local density functional approach has been used to compute the energy changes for the individual steps in three proposed decomposition pathways of 1,3,3-trinitroazetidine. The loss of the second NO2 is the first step at which their energetics are qualitatively different. It is concluded that products will be obtained from all three pathways. 1993.
