The structures of some energetic azo-compounds, e.g. azobenzene derivatives, azofurazan, azotriazine, and azotetrazine, were optimized using density functional theory at B3LYP/6-31G* level. A second-order Mφller-Plesset perturbation theory (MP2) calculation with 6-31G* basis set was carried out in order to obtain more precise relative energy between the trans-and cis-isomers of azo-compounds. It was found that a correlation existed between the relative energy and the sensitivity for these energetic azo-compounds. The higher the relative energy is, the lower the sensitivity of the azo-compound is. The relative energy could be regarded as one of the parameters that evaluated the sensitivity of energetic azo-compounds. Furthermore, by analyzing the mechanism of how the trans-cis isomerization process influences the sensitivity, we proposed that the energetic azo-compound owned the characteristic of self-desensitivity.
