(Figure Presented) Aluminum sites in zeolites are difficult to locate experimentally, and hence an indirect theoretical approach is proposed that identifies the most likely positions of the aluminum atoms by matching simulation results with available experimental data. The picture shows a model unit cell of FER-type zeolite with the four distinct T-sites for aluminum in green.
