Cellulose acetate and cellulose triacate are often referred to interchangably. There is a reasonable case for merging the articles. However, c. acetate and c. triacetate have quite different charecteristics, which affects their respective applications. I, as the author of the triacetate article, believe they should be kept separate. Psychofox 02:21, Mar 23, 2005 (UTC)


I've moved this article from triacetate to cellulose triacetate, as the latter name is more correct and as the former could refer to any triacetate compound, such as for example aluminium acetate. For now I've left the former page as a redirect, though I did fix all the pages that used to link to it, so it's ready in case anyone wants to start a proper article on triacetates in general. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 22:33, 26 July 2006 (UTC)


Is it just me, or is the chemistry section a little short? At the very least, we should show a diagram of the structure of this chemical.

I've added an infobox, including a diagram. -- Ed (Edgar181) 19:17, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
