The microporosity, MicP, of a mannitol-containing sample can be calculated by equation:
The small particle size and interconnected sponge like microporosity are believed to improve osteoconductive properties and promote timely resorption concomitant with the process of remodeling (100,119-121).

For imaging of the internal microporosity of the [beta]-TCP left in void by the calcination of the polyurethane polymer, the 2D stacks of images were transferred to a Leica Q 550 image analyzer and a Quips program was written to automatically select the internal voids by an algorithm using conditional image closings.
In this study, the technique used for the evaluation of the pore size distribution (PSD) allowed no study of microporosity.
Multiphase character of the brazed joint metal structure and shrinkage microporosity are main reasons of premature failure of brazed joints (BJ) in loading.
It is not artificially crosslinked and its biochemistry and microporosity facilitate rapid cell penetration, revascularization, and integration with host tissues.
It also has a microporosity that is thought to promote diffusion of nutrients and transmission of fluid pressures.
Several factors such as surface charge, microporosity, composition and changes of molecular composition, change the adsorption process.
The residual water, which does not contribute to any swelling or shrinkage, is represented by the center of the microporosity and is surrounded by the microporosity swelling.
Glauconite-bearing reservoir rocks may raise difficulties in the assessment of the reservoir quality from petrophysical data because, firstly, glauconite is characterized by microporosity and, secondly, due to its exchangeable cations, glauconite gives rise to excess conductivity of reservoir brine (Hamada et al.
Extended systems prepared this way have been found to exhibit desirable properties such as robust framework stability, microporosity, and guest-exchange.
