The relationship between time at equilibrium and pore size appeared to be universal regardless of changes to the slurry, to the mould design, to the set freezing protocol or to the mould design. Inset: the slope of the curve was 1/n, where n = 4.8; fit with a linear regression curve ( p < 0.05, R2 = 0.8). (see publication *)
