Dear all,
             I want to calculate free energy of solvation for a ligand in
water using FEP method in NAMD. I read the following post in mailing list,
in which free energy solvation of methyl alchol is calculated as shown

Asolv(MeOH) = A*(MeOH, vacuum) - A*(MeOH, water)

where Asolv solvation free energy
          A* be the free energy of anihilation.

My question is as follows,
                                      Is it not enough if we calculate the
MeoH+water ------ dummy+water.
Doesn't this corresponds to free energy of solvation of MeOH?

Thanks & Regards,
