    In this paper, we demonstrate that using a pressure corrected three-dimensional reference interaction site model (3D-RISM/PC+) one can accurately predict salting-out (Setschenow's) constants for a wide range of organic compounds in aqueous solutions of NaCl. The approach, based on classical molecular force fields, offers an alternative to more heavily parametrized methods.
