Abstract

For fullerenes of T d and Y h symmetry groups, systematization based on fullerene cage geometry is suggested. The technique is based on the description of the mutual arrangement of pentagons. The geometry of all T d and Y h fullerenes with up to 1000 atoms has been determined. Fullerenes with high chemical stability have been isolated, and their energy and geometrical characteristics have been calculated.
