We study the effects of Si doping on the bonding nature and elastic properties of AlMB14 compounds having B12 icosahedral clusters with M Li, Mg, and Na, by means of ab initio calculations. We find that Si substitution leads to a decrease in the cohesive energy as well as in the values of the bulk, shear, and Young's moduli.
