This difference is attributed to the absence of diffusional influences in small-sized particles whereas a strong diffusion resistance is present in particles larger than 31.
It is well known that in zeolite-catalyzed reactions, two types of diffusional processes are to be considered: (a) micropore, inside the zeolite crystal and (b) macropore, between the catalyst pellet particles.
We speculate that the increased minute ventilation and hyperinflation that are characteristic of even mild asthma enhance diffusional deposition of UFPs in the distal airways and alveoli.
When water flow is low, dense branches or other morphologies that increase the total volume and thickness of a colony's diffusional boundary layer may negatively affect the coral's energy balance.
The delivery formulation may also contain ingredients which decrease the diffusional (electrostatic) resistance of the lipid bi-layer to the passing molecule.

Librational, translational and diffusional motions have been observed in all liquids studied and, remarkably, molecular vibrational modes have been observed in some cases.
A binding event between two proteins typically consists of two stages: 1) a diffusional, non-specific search of the binding partners for each other, and 2) specific recognition of the compatible contact surfaces followed by complex-formation.
621, showing both diffusional and relaxational release behavior where relaxational behavior is due to change from glassy to rubbery nature and stresses formed during swelling mechanism [39].
These diffusional limitations are associated with the initiation (through the initiation efficiency, f; see Table 1), propagation (through the propagation rate constants, [k.
DW-MRI, which was used to quantify the diffusional motion of water with the ADC, has also been employed for diagnosing head and neck lesions.
