This paper is devoted to the dynamical stability of possible Trojan planets in binaries and in binary systems where one of the substellar companions is not larger than a brown dwarf. Using numerical integrations, we investigated how the size of the stable region around the Lagrangian point L4 depends on the mass parameter and the eccentricity of the secondary star. An additional goal of this work was to create a catalogue of all possible candidates, which could be useful for future observations to detect such objects.
