The possible minimum structures of $C_{60}(CH_2)_nOH$ (n=0~2) and $C_{60}(OH)_2$have been optimized using density functional theory (DFT) with the 6-311G (d,f) basis set. The harmonic vibrational frequencies and IR intensities are also determined to confirm that all the optimized geometries are true minima. Also zero-point vibrational energies (ZPVE) have been considered to predict the binding energies. The predicted binding energy of $C_{60}CH_2OH$ is about 10 kcal/mol more stable than the binding energy of $C_{60}OH$.
