Favorable Structures for Higher Fullerenes

  • T. G. Schmalz, D. J. Klein and X. Liu (a1)


Methods have been developed for the systematic generation of all fullerene isomers and for screening them to identify potentially stable structures. Some structural features associated with stable fullerenes are identified.
