Preface

Date Palm (Phoenix dactylifera) is one of the most populous members of the Palmae family and one of the main elements of flora in the Middle East and North Africa. Date palm is a very rich source of cellulosic fibers. Fibers can be obtained from the by-products of annual pruning such as the sheath, spadix stems, midribs, leaflets, and even the trunk at the end of the palm life. The renewed interest in sustainable resources and biobased materials has given a surge to rediscovering those agriculture by-products in new applications with a higher added value. The focus of this book is on the emergence of date palm fiber as a new source of cellulosic fibers that can be used in the reinforcement of polymer composites. Date palm fiber has a unique set of features and benefits, including, abundance, competitive price, in addition to, excellent mechanical, physical and chemical properties. This makes it stand out as an attractive alternative to other fibers currently being used in the natural fiber composites market.

Date Palm Fiber Composites: Processing, Properties and Applications is the first published book title on date palm fiber and its composites. The book acts as a body-of-knowledge or handbook for researchers and industrialists interested in this field. It covers the different aspects of date palm fiber composites with a focus on their processing, properties, and applications and includes up-to-date information on research carried out on date palm fiber composites covering versatile topics such as history of utilization, extraction, treatment, preform formation, composite fabrication, nanofibers, design and modeling, characterization, and properties, in addition to real-life applications in construction and building, wood substitutes, automotive, and other potential future applications.

We are highly thankful to all contributing authors, who provided their valuable ideas and knowledge in this edited book. We attempt to gather all the scattered information of the authors from diverse fields around the world (Egypt, Morocco, Iran, Algeria, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, India, UK, and USA) in the area of date palm fiber composites and finally complete this venture in a fruitful way.

We are highly thankful to Springer Nature team for their generous cooperation at every stage of the book production.
