Abstract: In the present study, cellulose was extracted from de-pectinated peel of Jackfruit. The peel was treated with alkali followed by a chemical process treatment. In present study, yield of jackfruit cellulose was 27g / 100g. The average particle size and zeta potential value of extracted cellulose is 0.730nm and -15.7mV respectively. Further, morphological characterization was carried out by using scanning microscopy. FTIR spectroscopy analysis revealed the presence of major absorptions indicative of cellulose and hemicellulose. The thermal profiles of the residual waste occurred in a minimum three steps, which representing the degradation profiles of hemicellulose, cellulose, and lignin
