Ab initio ground state densities have been used to calculate electrostatic potential surfaces in three hypothetical high-silica sodalites: Na[AlSi11O24], H[AlSi11O24] and H[GaSi11O24]. The results, in agreement with the conclusions of our recent works, also show that the investigation of electrostatic properties can provide an explanation at a microscopic level of the experimentally found higher catalytic activity of Al-substituted zeolites with respect to Ga-substituted ones.
