Abstract

CELLULOSE is a polar material held together by the strong secondary forces emanating from its OH groups. It can be swollen, dissolved or cemented together (according to circumstances) by a polar liquid like water or alcohol, while it is unaffected by non‐polar liquids such as benzene or toluene. It is rigid and relatively inextensible and strong.
