  Cellulose acetate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cellulose acetate is used as a film base in photography, and as a component in some adhesives; it is also used as a synthetic fiber.
Cellulose acetate (triacetate) photographic film was introduced in 1934 as a replacement for the unstable and highly flammable cellulose nitrate film stock that had previously been standard.
Cellulose acetate or acetate rayon fiber (1924) is one of the earliest synthetic fibers and is based on cotton or tree pulp cellulose ("biopolymers").

Vinyl acetate is an industrial chemical that is produced in large amounts in the United States.
Vinyl acetate is also used as a coating in plastic films for food packaging and as a modifier of food starch.
Vinyl acetate breaks down very quickly in the body to substances that are normally found in the body; thus, measurement of these break down products is not useful for determining whether you have been exposed to vinyl acetate.
