Abstract

The equilibrium geometries, heats of formation, and harmonic vibrational frequencies of hydrogenated buckminsterfullerene derivatives $C_{60}H_{60 - 6n}$ containing 1–8 benzenoid units were computed using MNDO and AM1 methods. Although the Hessian indices indicate that all such structures are true minima, the T symmetry structure of $C_{60}H_{36}$ with four benzene rings is calculated to be the best prospect for experimental characterization. The relative stabilities of the various derivatives are principally controlled by angle strain at the $sp^2$ and $sp^3$ carbon atoms.
