COMMENT: Cellulose forms the fibres in plants, and so becomes the fibre which constitutes paper. Cellulose fibres have the following properties: they are inert, that is, they do not react easily with other chemical substances; they absorb water and so can be made into the liquid pulp which when dried forms paper; they are colourless, transparent and very strong.
