The relative strength of Brønsted acid sites in isomorphously substituted chabazite (M-CHA; Me=Al3+, Ga3+, B3+, Sc3+ and Fe3+) and aluminophosphate-34 (MAlPO-34; Me=Ti4+, Si4+, Cr2+, Mn2+, Fe2+, Co2+ and Ni2+) have been investigated using periodic density functional theory. Adsorption energy of NH3 and deprotonation energy are considered for measuring the acidity. It has been found that Al3+-CHA and Mn2+-AlPO-34 possess the strongest acidic character. Moreover, a correlation between deprotonation energy and adsorption energy of NH3 has been observed.
