The extension of the chiral soliton approach to hypernuclei --strange or heavy flavoured-- becomes more reliable due to the success in describing other properties of nuclei, e.g. the symmetry energy of nuclei with atomic numbers up to ∼ 30 . The binding energies of the ground states of light hypernuclei with S = - 1 have been described in qualitative agreement with data. The existence of charmed or beautiful hypernuclei and Theta-hypernuclei (strange, charmed or beautiful) with large binding energy is expected within same approach.
