The results of the agar diffusion test do not depend only on the toxicity of the material for the particular microorganism, but are also highly influenced by the diffusibility of the material across the medium (17); this explains the difference in results obtained using different sealers, which vary according to their diffusibility across the medium.
The pozzolan material reduces the permeability and ionic diffusibility, increases the stability and durability, improves the performance compared to the action of the sulfates/alkali-aggregate reaction, reduces the hydration heat, and increases the compressive strength of the cement [18, 19].
When using radionuclides, tracer biokinetics such as isotope affinity to fat tissue and diffusibility are known to bias blood flow values of the terminal capillary system (Swain and Grant, 1989).
The vapor action and diffusibility of methylene-bis-thiocyanate (MBT) have been implicated in its efficacy (Singh et al.
This increased efficacy has been attributed to the greater degree of lipid solubility of articaine, which increases its diffusibility through soft tissues, and its increased concentration [Srinivasan et al.
Poorer soil diffusibility caused by higher soil moisture and bulk density was identified as the main factor which led to high C[O.
