As previously described [11], calorimetric and rheological measurements provide guidelines for the temperature region of interest for evaluating the fibrillar structure formation by SAXS analysis.
Studying the [(60 PP + 3 phr CB)/40 Ny] and the [(60 PP + 4 phr CB)/40 Ny] systems (both above percolation threshold) revealed that although both had a similar morphology of a continuous Ny fibrillar network (see Fig.
The results presented in this article show that lamellar and fibrillar morphological structures generated in chaotic mixing of small fractions of minor polymer component can be utilized to render immiscible polymer blends electrically conductive.
After a fourth sintering treatment, it would appear that the microstructure varies from being very densified at the plunger end, where most of the fibrillation generated in earlier sintering treatments had been lost, to being very closed but still comparatively fibrillar in the midspan, although the fibrils here were reduced in length, to being still fairly open but more fibrillar in the die end, albeit only significantly in the z direction.
There is an apparent plateau at low frequencies for the PLA-P3 fibrillar composite which demonstrates that G' in the low frequency region is greatly enhanced by adding 3 wt% of PTFE.
Comparison between the heterodont fibrillar prisms described herein and the calcite prisms found in these pteriomorph bivalves reveal distinct differences.
The lung contained well-demarcated regions of severe hemorrhage, and the pulmonary interstitium was expanded by edema and an inflammatory infiltrate of lymphocytes, histiocytes, and heterophils admixed with karyorrhetic debris and eosinophilic fibrillar material (fibrin).
Based on the clinical finding, local drug delivery was performed using tetracycline-impregnated fibrillar collagen that contains 25 mg pure fibrillar collagen containing approximately 2 mg of evenly impregnated tetracycline Hydrochloride (HCl) (Figure 3).
Their topics include active mechanics of the cytoskeleton, the cellular reconstitution of actively self-organizing systems, the structural and dynamical hierarchy of fibrillar collagen, cell-matrix and cell-cell mechanical interactions, cell motility in three-dimensional matrices, connective tissue development, mechanics of tissue morphogenesis, the continuum physics of tumor growth, and cell force-mediated collagen remodeling in cancer metastasis.

These sheet-like structures appeared to be comprised of multiple smaller long fibrillar structures, which were measured to be approximately 10 nm, as shown in figure 1.
