Calculation of detonation properties of chno explosives using mopac archive files as inputs
Recently, application of the Kamlet-Jacobs (K-J) empirical scheme for prediction of detonation properties of energetic materials (EMs) was shown as an effective tool for a fast estimation of a pool of the most promising molecular structures for a high-level treatment . The K-J scheme assumes two quantities, solid state enthalpy of formation ΔHf and crystal density dc, are calculated. In this context, semi-empirical method PM7  is very attractive and was recently applied for calculation of the gas-phase ΔHf of EMs.
