The present density functional treatment considers the interaction of TATP molecule with certain group II metals at the level of B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p). Composite systems of TATP and Be, 2Be, Mg and Ca have been considered. Although, in the case of beryllium composites TATP molecule remains intact, in its Mg and Ca composites the rupture of the ring (even in 1:1 composite) occurs. Certain structural, electronic, quantum chemical and some spectral properties of the composites have been obtained and discussed.</p> Lemi Türker Copyright (c) 2021-10-13 2021-10-13 7 1 1 16 10.34198/ejcs.7122.116
