This was probably because there was a gradual reduction of gas diffusibility due to increasing soil bulk density and soil moisture (Table 1) from the upper soil to the deep soil.
After counting the total number of bacterial colonies, they are grouped according to the morphological features, like size, shape, surface, margin and translucency, pigment production, diffusibility of pigment, and consistency as per standard procedure [7]
The reason is that molecular chain possesses good fluidity and diffusibility at lower cooling rate, and hence the samples can have higher crystallinity under higher temperature.
Despite the many advantages of boron wood preservatives, boron by itself does not adequately protect wood in ground contact and exterior applications because of its natural diffusibility and susceptibility to leaching (28,31,36), and pure boron does not fix to the cell wall (34).
The resulting effect is accelerated diffusibility of the solutions and denaturation of proteins; both phenomena lead to shortened processing time.
