To provide insight into the derivatization of fullerenes, extensive density functional theory calculations were performed on their hydrides and fluorides of several isomers of C-60. The calculated results demonstrate that the hydricles and fluorides of isolated pentagon rule (IPR) C-60 are less stable than those of non-IPR C-60. These results indicate that derivatization may cause structural transformation of a fullerene; and that many more non-IPR fullerenes may be captured in the forms of derivatives.
