Unlike traditional ceramic materials that do not by themselves generate bone formation when implanted in an intramuscular site, NuVasive's AttraX Scaffold has a microstracture and microporosity that are optimized for bone formation in this environment.
It can be noted that, as the percentage of sewage sludge increases in the substrate, there is an increase in bulk density and microporosity and reduction in macroporosity (Table 2), as observed in the study conducted by Kratz et al.
Polymers with intrinsic microporosity have rigid and contorted macromolecular structures resulting in extremely large free volumes.
We also noted that GH had a higher microporosity (31.6%) and lower macroporosity (11.1%) and WFP (18.73%) compared with BH (Table 1).
Image processing and measuring geometric methods were introduced to quantify microporosity at multiple scales of soil images.
Thus, the microporosity on the pore walls containing water depends on the wettability of coal pore surface.
Polymers of intrinsic microporosity (PIMs), thermally rearranged polymers (TRPs), polyimides, and polyurethanes are advanced polymers with high selectivity for C[O.sub.2] and hence are suitable membranes for C[O.sub.2] separation.
(2) An ethanol drier was applied for 30 s to remove water in the lesion area and make the microporosity of the enamel surface more visible.
In fact, improving interfaces reduced microporosity, avoiding pores formation between fillers and matrix.
As part of the characterization of the experimental area, the soil density, macroporosity, microporosity, soil resistance to penetration and soil water content were determined, as well as the textural analysis in depth ranges of 0.00 to 0.20 m and 0.20 to 0.40 m at 20 randomly selected points within the experimental area, prior to the experiment installation.
The total porosity (Tp, [m.sup.3] [m.sup.-3]), microporosity (Mi, [m.sup.3] [m.sup.-3]), macroporosity (Ma, [m.sup.3] [m.sup.-3]) and bulk density (BD, Mg [m.sup.-3) were determined by the method described in EMBRAPA (2011).
