NOTE: I made a mistake in the diagrams for cellulose, all of the glucose units are missing an oxygen atom!

Paper is made of cellulose, and in this video, I'll be converting it into a plastic called cellulose acetate. I'll be making two forms of it, known as cellulose diacetate and cellulose triacetate.
