Cellulosic DerivativesCellulosic Derivatives Daicel’s history began with the manufacture of celluloid from cellulose nitrate as a cellulosic derivative. We have made the industrialization of cellulose acetate based on these technologies.
Thereafter, Daicel expand our production of various cellulosic derivatives such as acetate tow for cigarette filters, and water-soluble polymers, and these products have helped in various fields in our life.
