The Gibbs free energies are 10.285,10.278, 10.283, 10.280, and 10.294 eV for 1,16-dimethyl derivative (trans-1, [D.sub.3d]), C 1,6-dimethyl derivative (trans-2, [C.sub.2v]), 1,7-dimethyl derivative (equatorial, [C.sub.2]), 1,4-dimethyl derivative (cis-2, [C.sub.s]), and 1,2-dimethyl derivative (cis-1, [C.sub.2v]), respectively.
