Nanoconfined liquids are of interest because of both their fundamental properties and their potential utility in an array of applications. The structure and dynamics of the liquid can be dramatically impacted by the geometrical constraints and the interactions with the interface. Understanding the molecular-level origins of these changes and how they are determined by the characteristics of the confining framework is the subject of ongoing experimental and theoretical studies. The progress and remaining challenges in these efforts are reviewed in the context of solvation dynamics and proton transfer reactions, processes that are strongly affected by nanoscale confinement.
