"Values for the eight distinct bond lengths are given in Table 3.3. ''The volume of the C70 molecule is defined as V = irabc, where a, b, c denote the radii of the ellipsoid as given in this table.

cThe calculated binding energy per C atom is ~20 meV greater for C70 than for Cm and ~690 meV less than for graphite, but the absolute magnitude of the binding energy is less certain.

dThe calculated band gap varies from 1.55 eV [3.49] to 1.76 eV [3.51],
