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]

In the first phase, water leaves the pore system without air intake, and peds (macropore system) or clay particles (micropore system) approach each other.
MicroPore materials work well in dynamic joint applications, the company said, as they generate a high degree of friction between the flanges, thus holding the surfaces in contact and preventing slippage.
Dai Hayward, CEO of Micropore, said: "After years of patient technology and product development Micropore has proved its products and markets and is ready for rapid growth.
Micropore's is a example of engineering Simon Crabtree "Micropore is an innovative company with a highly experienced management team and, since our first investment in 2016, we have seen the company successfully take its leading-edge technology from laboratory to full scale manufacture."
Generally, the PSD of micropore and lower pore size range of mesopore can be characterized by [N.sub.2] adsorption using DFT method [38, 39].
The specific surface area for the pristine CNTs (O-CNT) was the lowest (98.7 [m.sup.2]/g) with a micropore volume of 0.0392 [cm.sup.3]/g which was less than half of the total pore volume (0.120 [cm.sup.3]/g).
The micropore structure of the sample was measured using a PQ-OOl-type mini-NMR spectrometer, as shown in Figure 4.

Previous studies have confirmed that coal has a dual pore system including primary porosity consisting of micropore, transitional pore, and mesopore in the coal matrix and second porosity composed of nonuniformly distributed macropore [1-4].
KAC-700 had the largest microporous SSA (1754 [m.sup.2]/g) and the maximum micropore volume (0.94[cm.sup.3]/g), followed by KAC-800 ([S.sub.mic] = 1731 [m.sup.2]/g and [V.sub.mic] = 0.88[cm.sup.3]/g based on DFT calculation) and KAC-2 ([S.sub.mic] = 1402 [m.sup.2]/g and [V.sub.mic] = 0.76[cm.sup.3]/g).
