Abstract

The objective of this work is to analyze the decomposition of triaminoguanidinium azotetrazolate (TAGzT) in the liquid phase by using a combined experimental and computational approach. The experimental part involves the use of Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and Time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ToFMS) analysis of TAGzT decomposition. N2, NH3, HCN, N2H4, and the 3-azido-1,2,4-triazol-4-ide anion were identified as products of decomposition. The computational approach is based on using quantum mechanics for confirming the identity of the species observed in experiments and for identifying elementary chemical reactions that form these species.
