Maybe 12 hours or so. If you're planning to ride tomorrow, you'll be pumping that tire up again.
You might have to find a chemist of physicist to explain it fully, but as I understand it the concentration of co2 in the air is lower than the concentration in the tire so the co2 migrates through the inner tube trying to correct the imbalance.
