Several hundred to over ten thousand β(1→4) linked D-glucose units

Cellulose is an organic compound, a polysaccharide consisting of a linear chain of several hundred to over ten thousand β(1→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 bacteria secrete it to form biofilms. Cellulose is the most abundant organic polymer on Earth ..

DalinYebo‘s insight:

In whatever we do we try to retain and build on the molecular linkages. That’s the best way to avoid/reduce pollution.
