Fullerenes as polyradicals


Electronic structure of X60 molecules (X=C, Si) is considered in terms of 60 odd electrons and spin-dependent interaction between them. Conditions for the electrons to be excluded from the covalent pairing are discussed. A computational spin-polarized quantumchemical scheme is suggested to evaluate four parameters (energy of radicalization, exchange… (More)
