Turning paper into plastic

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.

Another fun video. I know this was an older post, and I don't know if you ever came back to this work. One thing I wanted to point out is that filter paper may not be the best choice for this work. As you may know, untreated paper fibers should just disintegrate in water very quickly. This would not be good for a piece of filter paper. Therefore, I am assuming they treat filter paper with the same chemical that is used to give paper towels their wet strength. This molecule is called polyamidoepichlorohydrin (PAE) and goes by the tradename Kymene. It is essentially a Nylon-like polymer with built in reactive crosslinking functionality known as azetidinum groups. It's all really cool stuff, BUT if you are trying to make pure di/tri-acetate, then this material would be one of your impurities. Since it's essentially a glue, it might have also lead to the cloudiness, but I don't have enough experience with this process to be sure. If you try this again, I would go with a different cellulose source. Paper still usually has traces of lignin in it. You could go with NSK (northern softwood kraft) paper with a very low kappa number, meaning it was bleached very well. However, I'm wondering if cotton might be a more pure source of cellulose. I believe that is what is used in cellulose-based rheology modifiers such as CMC (carboxy methyl cellulose) ...another fascinating thing to explore. If you ever want to chat, reach out to me!
