A long-sought empty non-IPR fullerene, #11188C72, which is more stable than the sole IPR isomer in the fullerene[72] family, has been retrieved and crystallographically characterized as #11188C72Cl4. Mass spectrometric data support the facile dechlorination of #11188C72Cl4 and, in turn, the possible stability of pristine #11188C72.
