With a large number of experimental and modelling papers reporting higher than expected liquid flow rates in both hydrophobic and hydrophilic nanochannels published in the last few years, there is a need to develop a coherent theoretical framework to explain these phenomena. In this work we will introduce a complete modelling and present a comparison between experimental data and predicted flows, showing good agreement.
