Determination of structural orientation of cellulose esterification by condensed phosphates using the method of mesylation (i.e., interaction with C[H.sub.3]S[O.sub.2]Cl) of groups free from phosphorylation with further interaction with potassium iodide showed that the process proceeds in primary alcoholic groups (13); the degree of substitution of hydroxyl groups on the residues of polyphosphoric acids reaches 0.3-0.6.
