We have calculated the pair correlation functions for several binary mixtures composed of simple solutes in a Lennard-Jones solvent. In particular, we have studied the solute-solute pair correlation functions and their dependence on the total density, the solvent Lennard-Jones parameters and on the solute-solute energy parameter. All the results were obtained from solving the Percus-Yevick equations, as well as from Monte Carlo simulations. The relevance of these results to the problem of hydrophobic interactions is also discussed.
