Liquids under nanoconfinement and non-equilibrium conditions feature in many problems of interest in energy recovery, management of energy dissipation or liquid storage. Nanoconfinement influences the structure of liquids and their response to external fields. In this talk, I will discuss recent investigations, using non-equilibrium molecular dynamics techniques, on the coupling effects between nanoconfinement and external fields. I will illustrate these ideas with two examples: thermodiffusion of aqueous solutions in nanopores and nanotribology of room-temperature ionic liquids in slit nanopores.
