Stability of hexakaidecahedral clusters was examined by optimizing geometry at the Hartree-Fock (HF) level followed by a single point energy calculation in the presence of Ne, N2, CH4 and C2H6. The single and double occupancy of the cage cavity were examined for N2 and CH4. It was found that the cluster with single occupancy is more stable than that with the double occupancy.
