The following interactive pages have been prepared to facilitate the determination of the configuration of C60 or C70 derivatives with a chiral functionalization pattern according to the procedure given in the paper 'Configurational Description of Chiral Fullerenes and Fullerene Derivatives with a Chiral Functionalization Pattern', C. Thilgen, A. Herrmann, F. Diederich, Helv. Chim. Acta 1997, 80, 183-199.

Input the locants taken from a CLOCKWISE (fC ) numbering scheme (for example a Schlegel diagram with numbered atoms) of C60 or C70: They do not necessarily have to represent the lowest set of locants, just take care that the relative positions of the introduced addends/substituents are correct.
If the addition pattern is noninherently chiral, you have to include the CIP (Cahn, Ingold, Prelog) priorities of the addends in the form "locant.priority", e.g., "4.02" for an addend/substituent in position 4 with the priority 2. If you are not sure whether a functionalization pattern is inherently or non-inherently chiral, you should include the priority of each addend in your input.
