    • Abstract


      Three stable conformations of salts formed from 3,6-diguanidino-1,2,4,5-tetrazine-1,4-di-N-oxide (DTDO) and HNO3 and HN(NO2)2 were studied using the density functional theory. For two salts, free energies (𝐺s) and total energies (𝐸s) of the three conformations increase in the same order. Intramolecular interactions in the three conformations, such as the hydrogen bonding interaction (𝐸H), the charge transfer (𝑞), the binding energy (𝐸b), the dispersion energy (𝐸dis) and the second-order perturbation energy (𝐸2), decrease in completely opposite order to that of 𝐺s and 𝐸s. Different conformations have distinct effects on the chemical stabilities and UV stabilities of two salts. Aromaticities of tetrazine in different conformations are slightly different. Although stabilities of the three conformations are different, their values are comparable.
