Molecular dynamics simulations have been carried out to examine the effect of confinement on the solubility and hydration of electrolytes in aqueous solutions. Our results show a significant effect, with the solubility of NaCl dropping by almost a factor of two when confined in an 8 \AA slit. With the expected advances in nanotechnology, these changes could have a significant impact on the design of nano devices, such as nano-reactors.
