A local-density approximation calculation is performed on various M8C12 structures, including Ti8C12, V8C12, VTi7C12 and ScTi7C12. It is found that the magic numbers observed during the experimental discovery of these species does not depend on the details of the electronic structure, but rather can be described as a chemical system derived from ethylene.
