Relative stabilities are calculated with the density-functional based tight-binding method for all isomers C36H2x (x = 1, 2, 3) based on the two C36 classical fullerenes with minimal pentagon adjacencies. Preferential addition at pentagon junctions leads to low-energy candidates for C36H4 and C36H6 based on the sixfold-symmetric cylindrical C36 fullerene cage, 36:15.
