Abstract: The compound Hexanitrohexaazatricyclododecane was designed and calculated by using the density functional theory method at the B3LYP/6-31G level. According to the calculated results, there are two optimized conformational structures, boat (α) and chair (β). It is found that the former is more stable based on the analysis of total energies, frontier molecular orbital energies and Mulliken populations. The IR spectra were obtained and assigned by means of normal-mode analyses. Thermodynamic properties at 200-800 K were provided using the statistical thermodynamics method. Finally, the detonation velocity and detonation pressure were predicted by Kamlet formula based on the calculated theory density and heat of formation. The predicted detonation velocity and detonation pressure of α conformer are 9.46 km/s and 41.74 GPa, while those of β are 9.34 km/s and 40.02 GPa, respectively.
