Abstract

A constant temperature molecular dynamics study has been performed on PM3 (RHF) geometry optimized nitroglycerine molecule. The dynamics was carried out by using MM + method at 550 K which is above the explosion point of nitroglycerine. Some molecular orbital characteristics of nitroglycerine at elevated temperatures were computed. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
