Cellulose is an organic compound with the formula $C_6H_{10}O_5$, a polysaccharideconsisting of a linear chain of several hundred to over ten thousand $ \beta (1 \rightarrow 4)$ linked D-glucose units. Cellulose is an important structural component of the primary cell wall of green plants, many forms of algae and the oomycetes. Some species of bacteriasecrete it to form biofilms. Cellulose is the most abundant organic polymer on Earth. The cellulose content of cotton fiber is 90%, that of wood is 40–50% and that of dried hemp is approximately 45%.
Cellulose is mainly used to produce paperboard and paper.
