Rayon is chemically known as: (1) Cellulose nitrate (2) Cellulose (3) Cellulose acetate (4) Resins

Answer: (3)

Rayon is a manufactured fiber that is regenerated as cellulose fiber made from natural sources such as wood and agricultural products. The many types and grades of rayon can imitate the texture and feel of natural fibers such as silk, wool, cotton and linen. Rayon is chemically labelled cellulose acetate, which is a polymer of a semi-synthetic type. It is called semi-synthetic because it has a natural cellulose portion that in combination with acetate gives cellulose acetate (rayon).
