Molar binding energy of the boron nitride single-walled zigzag and armchair nanotubes is calculated within the quasi-classical approach. Its oscillation depending on the tube radius is found out in the range of ultra-small-radii. Nanotubes (1,1), (3,0), and (4,0) are predicted to be more stable species among single-walled boron nitride nanotubes.
