Encapsulation of atoms and molecules by fullerenes is a subject of current research interest, usually achieved experimentally with difficulty, under high pressure. This work examines the capability of boron oxide nanocapsules to store some simple gaseous molecules both endo- and exohedrally. The study finds that boron oxide complexes of different geometries have gas storage capabilities similar to C60. The results are expected to excite further experimental work in this field.
