Benzotrifuroxan is a powerful, hydrogen-free explosive material. It also has an interesting chemistry. Through ring opening and reclosure mechanisms, various isomers are likely to form. In the present study, within the density functional theory (B3LYP/6-31G(d)), isomeric benzotrifuroxans, dinitrosobenzodifuroxans, and tetranitrosobenzomonofuroxans as well as hexanitrosobenzene have been investigated. Also, the monoionic forms of some of these have been considered.
