The MP2 perturbation treatment with the 6-31G basis set has been applied to linear, cyclic, and polyhedral structures of Cn, n = 6-13, esp. to C12 in this report. While the linear and cyclic species can co-exist, polyhedral ones are too high in energy. Preliminary results on C8H (related to diffuse interstellar bands) are reported, too.
