A purified microcrystaline cellulose powder, partially-depolymerized and derived from fiberous plants. Cellulose is a white, odorless, free-flowing powder that is virtually free of organic and inorganic contaminants. It is insoluble in water, in dilute acids, and in most organic solvents; practically insoluble in sodium hydroxide solution (1 part in 20).

Often used in stone and wall painting conservation for the purposes of soluble salt extraction, consolidation and cleaning. Cellulose powders have the reputation of being easy and pleasant to work with, have a neutral pH, high water absorption and plasticity, exhibit good conformance and adhesion to the substrate, and in most cases leave minimal residues after clearance.
