Difference between Bacterial Cell and Plant cell (Bacterial cell vs Plant cell)

The bacteria  are the smallest and most primitive unicellular organisms. The structure of bacterial cell is very simple. The cell shows prokaryotic organization. The protoplasm  of the cell is surrounded by a cell wall. Cell wall is made up of mainly polysaccharide (glucans, mannans, galactans) chitin, muramic acid and an amino acid diaminopimelic acid.  
Difference between Bacterial Cell and Plant cell (Bacterial cell vs Plant cell)
The plant cells are more complex and advanced. Plant cells are surrounded by a definite rigid, protective envelope called the cell wall. The  wall is made up of chiefly cellulose, and often with some other materials (suberin, lignin, pectin etc.) in minor amounts.
