Recent experimental investigations of liquid slip have yielded highly interesting results that can be of great use to both microfluidic and nanofluidic components of lab-on-a-chip systems. Experiments indicated a large influence of wall hydrophobicity and roughness, with a possible special role for carbon nanotube membranes. These experimental data are supported by both classical and recent theoretical considerations. This paper presents a summary of these data.
