Recent studies have confirmed that model has a stable liquid phase confined to a rather narrow temperature range; in this letter we determine the phase diagram of model and show that also this fullerene possesses a liquid phase whose existence range is wider than that of . A "corresponding state"behaviour of and , emerging from a description in terms of reduced quantities of both the interaction potential and the phase diagrams' parameters, is then extended to higher-order fullerenes. Critical- and triple-point densities and temperatures of , and are thereby predicted. The decreasing accuracy of such a representation of phase behaviour with increasing n is discussed in relation to the model potential features.
