I'm describing the properties of a molecule, and I'm wondering if it's correct to say this -

Physical properties: Fine, white, crystalline, powder

OR should I remove the commas and write -

Physical properties: Fine white crystalline powder

  • Grammar -

    You should keep the commas if you can do the following:

    ~ insert "and" between the adjectives
    or
    ~ put those adjectives in different order and they still make sense.

    If you cannot do either of those things, then you need to keep the commas.

  • Grammar -

    Use commas
