Theoretical studies of fullerenes, metallofullerenes, and their derivatives have employed a wide spectrum of techniques, in particular graph-theoretical (like the Wiener index), quantum-chemical, and statistical-mechanical treatments, in order to evaluate and rationalize stability, reactivity, and properties of the unique cage species. The theoretical stability measures of various types are analyzed, compared and illustrated on C80 cages satisfying the isolated-pentagon rule.
