Abstract

Abstract Ab initio Hartree-Fock (3-21G and 6-31G*(5d) calculations on the structures and stabilities of the low-energy isomers of C 78 are reported. The energy ordering of the isomers can be interpreted in terms of two different physical effects: an electronic factor which maximizes the resonance stabilization energy and a steric factor which minimizes the strain energy. The nature of the three most stable isomers (C 2ν C′ 2ν and D 3 seen in two different experiments can be understood in terms of competition between these two opposing effects.
