    Samenvatting

    We systematically investigate by Monte Carlo simulations the role of the wall structure on a fluid of flat hexagonal molecules confined between two graphite walls. Our simulations show that the centers of mass of the molecules in different layers undergo an order-disorder transition as the wall separation increases, irrespective of the details of the wall structure. The wall structure thus becomes insignificant for the intervening fluid even down to a surprisingly low wall separation.
