The thermodynamic stabilities of La2C96 series including La2C2@C94 and La2@C96 were studied by density function theory combined with statistical mechanics. La2@D2(191838)-C96, La2C2@Cs(153479)-C94 and La2C2@C1(153491)-C94 were revealed to be the thermodynamically isomers. The distribution of frontier molecular orbitals of La2C2@C1(153491)-C94 is unique. Specially, the HOMO and LUMO are mainly distributed on one pole and on the equator of the carbon cage respectively, and this feature can facilitate the formation of regioselective derivatives.
