Abstract : The object of this research is to characterize, using ab initio quantum mechanical methods, the stabilizing or destabilizing effects of hydrogen and/or oxygen matrices on proposed high energy density molecular (HEDM) systems. In addition, the unimolecular fragmentation reactions of large HEDM species such as N20 will be studied via density functional methods.
