Cellulose strand. Molecular model of five base units of the polysaccharide cellulose. The base unit has the molecular formula: C6.H10.O5. This polymeric biological material consists of a linear chain of these D-glucose units. It is the key structural component of the cell wall of green plants. Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (grey), hydrogen (white) and oxygen (red).
