Magnetic moments of the carbododecahedron (C2o fullerene) with charges from (-5) to
(+4) (in units of the elementary charge e) were calculated by linear combination of
atomic orbitals method at the density functional level. It is established that the C20 in the
charge state (-1) and the multiplicity 2 has the lowest total energy, while for charge states
(-4), (-2) and (+4) the magnetic moment of |j = 2UB (HB is the Bohr magneton) is found.
Depending on the charge state and the multiplicity, carbon bonds and the h symmetry of
the starting structure of the C2o can change substantially. Neutral C2o may have u = 2(iB.
