  Article:   RETRO MAP OPERATIONS.

  Abstract:  Operations on maps are well known theoretical tools for transforming a given polyhedral tessellation. Several properties of fullerenes, such as their π-electronic structure and stability, need information on their associate graph, which eventually resulted by a map operation applied on a smaller molecular graph. In this respect, retro-operations, particularly those of the most used leapfrog, chamfering and capra operations, appear particularly useful in searching the properties of fullerenes. A series of analyzed fullerenes proved to be leapfrog transforms of smaller cages. This helped in understanding their closed π-electronic structure and stability.
