[gmx-users] RDF

Search for my papers "Vitaly V. Chaban". You will find many papers
determining solvation/solubility, where it is described how solubility
can be obtained from atomistic simulations.

RDF alone is not a proper descriptor. However, if you plot COM-COM RDF
for C60, you will get some solubility related information (but not
numerical solubility).

In my personal opinion, even with what you call binders solubility of
C60 is water is small. You will not be able to record it using small
MD systems.

Best of luck.
