Abstract

An Investigation of the effects of various homosubstitutions on the symmetry group of saturated fullerene (C20H20-nXn) has been done. In substituted saturated fullerene (C20H20), tri and tetra substitutions in carbons within one hemisphere reduces the point group to Cs, whereas mono, di & penta substitutions at adjacent vertices within one hemisphere give C3v, C2v, and C5v, respectively. It has been found that di substitution in both hemispheres give the highest degree of symmetry.
