Explosive cyclic molecules

Highly energetic molecules have been researched in science for many years to be used as fuels, explosives and fireworks. To create these molecules, the starting material needs to contain very weak bonds that can form very strong bonds when undergoing combustion. The molecules of interest have been selected due to their odd and highly strained bond angles and the fact that they have never been studied for their thermochemical properties. This study was done to determine if these molecules have high energy densities.
