The objects of fullerene science - fullerenes, metallofullerenes & other fullerene endohedrals, and nanotubes - represent promising candidates for nanoscience and nanotechnology applications. The emerging concepts are illustrated on C74-based endohedrals, especially Ca@C74, Sr@C74, and Ba@C74. A set of six C74 cages is considered. Special interest is paid to the enthalpy-entropy evaluations for estimations of the relative as well as absolute populations.
