The absorption of liquid is strongly determined by pore volume distribution.
The N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms show that the specific surface area and the pore volume of the CMs are less than 7 m2/g and 0.005 cm3/g, respectively, illustrating that they are nonporous.
The tendency of adhesion decreases with increase in particle size and pore volume of the particles of antiblock agents.
The most probable pore size of the five kinds of cement paste with organic matter was almost the same as that of the blank, and the total pore volume was significantly smaller than that of the blank group.
The cumulative pore volume of the hardened paste containing steel slag powder increases dramatically with the cement replacement ratio.
In contrast, UAC only showed a pore peak centered at ~1.17 nm with very low pore volume, indicating the introduction of both subnanopores and mesopores through the KOH activation process.
Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate the pore volume, pore diameter, and the specific surface area of various commercial calcium silicate-based endodontic cements.
The surface area and pore volume were calculated from the BET analysis.
These nanoparticles have the following remarkable characteristics [8-12]: (1) there exist ordered pore networks, uniform pore size, and precise control of drug loading and release; (2) the large pore volume can store more drugs; (3) high surface area means that the adsorption ability of drug is strong; (4) the surface contains a large amount of Si-OH--functional group functionalization offers better control of drug loading and releasing.
A number of considerations determine the choice of filter material: minimizing pore volume is commonly desirable as well as chemical inertness.
