Using an all-electron mixed-basis approach and within the local density approximation, the electronic structure of C58BN hetero-fullerenes in the solid fee phase has been calculated as a function of their orientation. We study the three cases where the boron-nitrogen pair is oriented along [1 0 0], [1 1 0] and [1 1 1] directions, and discuss the stability and the band structure of three 3 systems.
