The computations for isolated-pentagon-rule (IPR) isomers of C 96 were carried out using four semiempirical quantum chemical methods. The entropy terms were also computed and the relative-stability problem was treated in terms of the Gibbs function. It was stated that the absolute stabilities of fullerenes of different dimensions and the absolute values of the heats of formation were required. It was found that the actual entropy and Gibbs free energy changed considerably with pressures on the C 60 and C 70 based on quantum chemical methods.
