Figure 2 elucidates the effects of the saturation time on the porosity of scaffolds constituted using the same array of NaCl/PMRs: 5, 10, 15, and 20.
NaCl/polymer mass ratio = 5 Saturation pressure Saturation time = 72 hr Saturation time = 24 hr (MPa) 4.
The required saturation time was determined from the absorption curves.
Once the required saturation time was reached, the pressure vessel was discharged, the samples removed, cleaned, and weighed.
Microcell nucleation was studied with respect to the process variables of gas saturation time, gas saturation pressure, foaming time, and foaming temperature.
Once the saturation time was reached, the samples were removed from pressure and foamed at an elevated temperature (the foaming temperature) for a fixed time period (the foaming time).
Theoretically, in order to be able to calculate the average rate of nucleation as a function of saturation time, one needs to study the kinetics of diffusion of [CO.
4, the saturation times at column for copper and manganese ions and 2, 4 and 6 mL/min flow rates are 270, 255, 225, 210, 195 and 165 min, respectively.
