The grand canonical Monte Carlo method is used to study a binary mixture of Lennard-Jones atoms confined to various corrugated slit-micropores which are in thermodynamic equilibrium with their bulk phase counterpart. The micropore walls have the structure of the (100) face of an fcc lattice. In addition to this atomic scale structure, one wall possesses nanoscale structure in the form of rectilinear grooves (corrugation). The grooved surface divides the confined fluid film into two strip shaped regions. The confined film is studied in each region as a function of groove width, bulk phase composition, and the size of the wall atoms.
