Study of geometries of 16 possible isomers for c76N2 based on C78(C2v) by intermediate neglect of differential overlap (INDO) series of methods indicated that the most stable geometry 25,78-c76N2 where two nitrogen atoms substitute two apexes C(25) and C(78) near the shortest X axis and Y axis formed by two hexagons and a pentagon. Electronic structures and spectra of c76N2 were investigated. The reason for the red-shift for absorptions of c76N2 compared with that of C78(C2v) is discussed.
