Interpenetration of Silica in a Network of Cellulose and Divalent Lead to Form Glassy Polymers
Glassy polymeric materials were prepared by heating sodium plumbite-treated cotton in contact with a siliceous substrate. The glassy polymeric materials resemble petrified cotton and contain considerable carbon. They resist acid and alkali, are hard, and can serve as labels, decorations, adhesives between glasses, or colored coatings.
