The paper proposes a new nomenclatural approach to the systematization of molecular container compounds. In addition to reversibly formed host-guest compounds it suggests the name of capturer-captive compounds to designate molecular container complexes where the capturer molecule (carcerand, fullerene, etc.) captures irreversibly the captive atom or molecule.
