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.
