Two-dimensional analysis between the explosive performance and the impact sensitivity for methylnitroimidazole derivatives was performed to understand where these new energetic molecules could be utilized. The explosive performance was analyzed with the Cheetah program, while the impact sensitivity was predicted using neural network analysis. Successive nitration of methylimidazole made the molecule more sensitive, but methyltrinitroimidzole appeared to have a relatively good safety characteristic. We recently developed a novel method to analyze the potential usage of new energetic molecules using a two-dimensional chart, where the explosive performance and the impact sensitivity were located on the X-axis and Y-axis, respectively. An analysis of a two-dimensional plot between the performance and the sensitivity indicated that methyldinitroimidazole would be useful for insensitive explosive formulations, while methyltrinitroimidazole was forecasted for use as an ingredient for high explosive formulations.
