Natural fibers are generally hydrophilic in nature, as they are in fact derived from lignocellulose, which contains strongly polarized hydroxyl groups. During the last few decades, cellulose has been one of the most abundant, inexpensive, non-toxic, and renewable biomacromolecules in nature and has been widely applied in diverse fields. In this study, we choose to optimize the extraction process of date palm in order to obtain ultimate fibers with minimum rate lignin, minimum degradation, a high yield and degree of whiteness. To characterize these fibers infrared spectroscopy (IR), XRD, EDX, SEM and XPS were used.
