mi·cro·pore

(mī'krō-pōr),
An organelle formed by the pellicle of all stages of sporozoan protozoa of the subphylum Apicomplexa and also found in developmental stages that may lack the inner pellicle layer; it is composed of two concentric rings (in transverse section), the inner of which corresponds with an invagination of the outer pellicle membrane. Micorpores thus far observed seem to serve as feeding organelles; their role in nonfeeding developmental forms is unknown.
[micro- + G. poros, pore]

During bioleaching, a lot of micropores were generated in oil shale, which facilitated the transfer of heat from the outside into the inside of the bioleached oil shale sample.
numerous uniformly distributed micropores are visible on surfaces of certain spherulites, furthermore VP + BMI is more homogenous.
Obviously, the addition of infiltration agent in the preparation process of the gradient lubrication layer effectively optimizes the wetting property of the lubricants on the matrix, so that the soft alloys can easily be infiltrated into the micropores of the ceramic matrix [9].

Because the micropores in cellulosic fibers range in size from six to 300 A, any substances placed therein including superab-sorbents are nanosized.
In this study, we analyse aggregates of soil in which the original structure has been maintained and thin sections of undisturbed soil at [micro]m-scale in order to resolve the distribution of Ca, Fe, Mn, Zn, and Cu around micropores by [mu]-XRF and their speciation by XANES.
This low pressure capability provides more resolution and options for materials with micropores like metal organic frameworks, activated carbons and zeolites.
This new low-pressure capability provides higher resolution and new options for materials with micropores like metal organic frameworks, activated carbons, and zeolites.
The decrease of porosity at higher mixed ratio should be attributed to the widening of micropores.
