The monomolecular equation proved to be appropriate for describing the decreasing rate of urediniospore production per uredinium with increasing uredinial density in the single-strain and mixed-strain treatments [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2 AND 4 OMITTED].
The observed nonlinearity in the first part of the experimentally obtained sorption curve is believed to be a result of pronounced surface effects, e.g., the absorption of a monomolecular layer of liquid in open-ended pores.
At initial sorption stages (low values of moisture content), there are polar sorption sites highly active, with elevated interaction energy on the adsorbent surface, which is covered with water molecules, forming a monomolecular layer (Al-Muhtaseb et al., 2004).
In the present study, seven non-linear regression models such as Gompertz, Brody, Bertalanffy, Monomolecular, Logistic, Richards, and Weibull models were fitted to body weight-age data of Thalli sheep.
These barriers include celloidin tubes [1], interposition of tunica vaginalis [2], cellophane [35], vitallium [6], fatty tisues, muscle and fascia [7], endothelial cuffs [8], veingrafts [9], stainless steel implants [10], monomolecular cellulose filter tubes [11], gastroecnemius muscle flap [12], stainless steel tubes [11,13], silicone-dacrone reinforced [14], polytetrafluroethylene (PTFE) [15], polyethylene tubes [16], silicone sheath [17], bovine fascia [18] and dacron tube [18].
Applications, to mention but a few, include: combinatorial chemistry, electrochemistry, photochemistry, water purification, monomolecular membranes, curing agents, catalysis, and drug delivery [25].
In general, titanium oxide can be represented as O=T=O and this unsaturated characteristic is expected to react with hydroxyl groups on the surface of inorganic fillers to give hydrophobic polymer-compatible monomolecular layers.
According to the adsorption rate equation, K for polyamide resin was obtained as 1.753 h , which was expressed as monomolecular adsorption.
Over the past 3 decades of research, it has become apparent that one of the most common surface structures on bacteria are monomolecular crystalline arrays of proteinaceous subunits termed surface layer or Crystalline Layer (Figure 1) Crystalline Layer subunits can recrystallization at interfaces (Figure 2) [1,24,28,30,34].
