Nanofluidics is the study of the manipulation, control, and behavior of fluids that are exiguous to nanometer-sized structures, while nanofluids are a class of fluids that contains nanoparticles. There are four different ways to apply nanofluidics roughly for analysis: by using nanoporous membranes, single nanopore transport, nanoconfinement, and by the concentration polarization functionality. The use of ultra-small confined spaces of well-defined nanofluidic systems and unusual effects would offer new mechanisms and technologies like Lab-on-a-chip, NCAMs to manipulate nanoscale objects as well as to synthesize unique nanomaterials in the liquid phase. Nanofluidics will, therefore, be a new arena for the science of materials.
