Interaction of an alpha particle with triaminotrinitrobenzene (TATB) which is an insensitive explosive has been investigated by density functional calculations. It has been found that alpha-particles interact with TATB disturbing its planar geometry. As a result, the C-NO2 bond dissociation energies are substantially decreased, whereas detonation velocity and pressure values increased as compared to TATB. The quantum chemical properties of the structures are presented.
