Hello again Archana,

Glad to see you managed to build the system and simulate it since we last
exchanged e-mails.

In my simulations TFE is never 100% miscible but doesn't also display such
hydrophobic behavior as you report here. However it's hard to answer your
questions without more information about the system, settings and
parameters (especially which force field and TFE parameters did you use, etc).

P.S.: By the way, what is the rationale behind the 32 ns NVT + 10 ns NPT

Best regards,
