Entropy-based methods are useful tools for investigating various problems in mathematical chemistry, computational physics and pattern recognition. In this paper we introduce a general framework for applying Shannon entropy to fullerene graphs, and used it to investigate their properties. We show that important physical properties of these molecules can be determined by applying Hosoya entropy to their corresponding graphs.
