ISOMERIZATIONS OF THE FULLERENES

Abstract:

The Stone-Wales (pyracylene) rearrangement is a hypothetical mechanism for interconversion of fullerene isomers, accounting for mobility of the pentagons on the surfaces of these clusters. Two versions of the transformation, involving patches of 4 and 12 rings, respectively, can be defined. Energetic and group-theoretical aspects of the transformation are discussed, symmetry-based selection rules devised and complete isomerisation maps presented for small fullerenes (C20 to C40) and isolated-...
