Theoretical Prediction of the Heats of Formation, Densities, and Relative Sensitivities for 2-(azidomethyl)-2-nitropropane-1,3-diyl dinitrate (AMDNNM), bis-aminofurazan diamino-octanitro-azobenzene (BAFDAONAB), and bis-nitrofurazan diamino-octanitro-azobenzene (BNFDAONAB)

Abstract: Using a series of scripts developed by the US Army Research Laboratory, written to dramatically simplify the computation of crystalline density and heat of formation, the performance properties were evaluated for the 2-(azidomethyl)-2-nitropropane-1,3-diyl dinitrate (AMDNNM), bis-aminofurazan diamino-octanitro-azobenzene (BAFDAONAB), and bis-nitrofurazan diamino-octanitro-azobenzene (BNFDAONAB) notional energetic materials. A qualitative estimation of the impact sensitivities has also been calculated. This report outlines the procedures used to generate this information and includes Cheetah calculations using the predicted crystalline density and heat of formation.
