A theoretical analysis of the proposed insensitive high energy density material IHEDM 2-aza-3- dinitromethylene-4-azanitro bicyclo 3.3 .0-7-nitro-6,8-diazole ADAND is reported. A Density Functional Theory DFT study is performed in order to determine the optimized structure and stability as well as thermochemical aspects of ADAND. All calculations were performed using the Gaussian03 software with the Gaussview graphical user interface. Normal modes of vibration and heat of detonation of the proposed insensitive energetic material are calculated the oxygen balance and energy density of the proposed IHEDM are also determined. Calculations were also performed on FOX-7 2,4-dinitroimidazole 2,4-DNI RDX 2- methyl-4,5-dinitro-l,2,3-triazole-2-oxide MDNTO and HMX to enable comparison of the chosen explosive performance parameters to ADAND.
