The results of highly accurate calculations are presented for all twenty-two known bound S(L = 0)-, P(L = 1)-, D(L = 2)- and F(L = 3)-states in the six three-body muonic molecular ions ppμ,pdμ,ptμ,ddμ,dtμ and ttμ. A number of bound state properties of these muonic molecular ions have been determined numerically to high accuracy. The dependence of the total energies of these muonic molecules upon particle masses is considered. We also discuss the current status of muon-catalysis of nuclear fusion reactions.
