cel·lu·lose

(sĕl′yə-lōs′)
A carbohydrate that is the main component of the cell walls of plants. It is insoluble in water and is used to make paper, cellophane, textiles, explosives, and other products. ♦ An important compound derived from cellulose is cellulose acetate, forming a durable material that is used in making movie film, magnetic tape, plastic film for wrapping and packaging, and textile fibers. It is often called cellulose or acetate for short.

cellulose

1. A carbohydrate of which plant cell walls are made.
2. A fibrous carbohydrate forming the cell walls of plants. It is indigestible to humans, but stimulates peristalsis.
