In this paper, we study several distance-based entropy measures on fullerene graphs. These include the topological information content of a graph
, a degree-based entropy measure, the eccentric-entropy
, the Hosoya entropy
and, finally, the radial centric information entropy
. We compare these measures on two infinite classes of fullerene graphs denoted by
. We have chosen these measures as they are easily computable and capture meaningful graph properties. To demonstrate the utility of these measures, we investigate the Pearson correlation between them on the fullerene graphs.
