Abstract

As part of a series of studies on new potential green high energy materials, we have calculated the structures and properties of a series of nitro-substituted urea molecules. Our results indicate that nitrated urea molecules have specific enthalpies of decomposition commensurate with current high energy materials. At the same time, they are all low in carbon, suggesting an application as a “green” high energy material.
