Nanofluidics – recent progress

Nanofluidics is the study and application of fluids in and around geometries with nanoscale characteristic dimensions. The field of nanofluidics is not brand-new. Some issues associated with nanoscale fluidics have been occasionally dealt with by researchers in membrane science, colloid science, and chemical engineering for many decades. A recent review article provides a selected overview of the recent progress, rather than a comprehensive review of the entire field.
