Controlled coagulation in the RLA regime yields much narrower particle size distributions than are achievable with DLA.
When the coagulation rate of latexes is slowed so that the coagulation time is in the range of about 1-120 sec, reaction limited aggregation can occur.
(1) Unlike conventional coagulation (i.e., DLA), RLA allows dense, spheroidal aggregates of latex particles to be formed in the 5-20% polymer solids range.
The H and E staining demonstrated increasing deep damage in the cortex with the increase of coagulation power.
The horizontal fibers are mostly located at the midneocortical level, [sup][8] and coagulation with the output power 4-6 W can completely damage the brain tissue in the molecular layer, external granular layer, and external pyramidal layer.
