Abstract:

The x-ray structures of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene and 2,4,6- trinitrotoluene- a-d3 have been determined at 130K. The molecular structure and vibrational spectra are calculated by the MNDO-PM3 method and are in agreement with experimental results. The short intra-and intermolecular hydrogen contacts correlate with the known thermal and ionization degradation pathways of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene. Reprints.
