Nanofluidics, as a young research field, has been receiving more and more attentions. It has been successfully applied in various fields including nanoscale separation, biochemical sensing and energy conversion. The development of nanofluidics is closely related to electrochemistry that can provide a driving force for the study of the material transport characteristics in nanopores/nanochannels. On the other hand, nanopores/nanochannels can creat a microenvironment for study of spatially nanoconfined electrochemistry. The combination of nanofluidics and electrochemistry has given rise to many new theories and technologies for single molecule/particle analysis and nanofluid manipulation. Herein, we provide a review of the recent progresses in nanofluidic electrochemistry based on the combination of nanopore and electrode, and finally give a brief outlook on this field.
