Three complete sels of the isolated-pentagon-rule fullerene isomers are considered-C80 (7 species), C86 (19 species), and C88 (35 species). The interisomerk separation energetics is essentially similar at semiempirical (AMI, SAM1) and ab initio (HF/STO-3G, HF/3-21G, HF/4-31G) levels. For the C0 set, the HF/4-31G computations explain why the lowest-energy isomer is not experimentally observed. The computations also agree with observations on C86 and C88.
