Quantitative structure-property relationships (QSPRs) between the molecular structure of [C60] and [C70] fullerene derivatives and their solubility in chlorobenzene (mg/mL) have been established by means of CORAL (CORrelations And Logic) freeware. The CORAL models are based on representation of the molecular structure by simplified molecular input line entry system (SMILES). Three random splits into the training and the external validation sets have been examined. The ranges of statistical characteristics of these models are as follows: n = 18, r2 = 0.748-0.815, s = 15.1 -17.5 (mg/mL), F = 47-71 (training set); n = 9, r2 = 0.806-0.936, s = 12.5-17.5 (mg/mL), F = 29-103 (validation set).
