CELLULOID PING PONG BALL BURNS RAPIDLY<br />
Nitrocellulose Products Are Highly Inflammable<br />
Cellulose mononitrate, cellulose dinitrate, and cellulose trinitrate are the forms of nitrocellulose, one of the first man made polymers. Because it was so unstable, camphor was added to amend the problem of detonation.
