Abstract: Wood as a product of biological development is a complex substance both anatomically and chemically. It is a heterogeneous substance differing markedly between trees of different species, to some extent between individuals of the same species and not unoften even from part to part within the same tree of trunk and branch or sapwood and heartwood. Cell wall substance is a chemical treatment of wood it provide the knowledge of the chemistry of wood and its components is therefore an essential preliminary to the understanding of the principles and techniques in the different fields of chemical utilization. Generally wood contains cell wall substances it is components of cell wall mainly contains holocellulose and lignin. Among the different market sites average maximum holocellulose content (72.34 %) was recorded in Bhalja. The minimum value (67.03 %) was noticed in Baroh. Lignin was recorded highest in Kheri (24.65 %) and the lowest value (21.70 %) was found in Rajgarh. Holocellulose, which partly skeletal and incrusting and partly reserve materials they occur not only as cell wall constitutes and their incrustations but also within the cell. They were extractable with dilute alkalis and not with water and are readily hydrolysis to the constituent sugars and a sugar acids by boiling with dilute mineral acids. They appear to be in some sort of chemical combination with the other cell wall components namely cellulose and lignin because while they were not extractable with water from the original material they become soluble in the same solvent when once they were isolated.
