Tribology of Natural Fiber Polymer Composites, Second Edition, covers the availability and processing of natural fiber polymer composites and their structural, thermal, mechanical and tribological properties and performance. Environmental concerns are driving demand for biodegradable materials such as plant-based, natural fiber-reinforced polymer composites. These composites are fast replacing conventional materials in many industrial applications, especially in automobiles, where tribology (friction, lubrication and wear) is an important aspect.

Navin Chand Navin Chand is the former Acting Director of CSIR-Advanced Materials and Processes Research Institute (AMPRI), Bhopal, India. He obtained his PhD degree in Textile Technology from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, in 1980. After obtaining his degree he joined the National Chemical laboratory (NCL), Pune as Scientist. Later he joined the Regional Research Laboratory (RRL), Bhopal (now AMPRI Bhopal) in 1982. He has published more than 200 papers in journals of national and international repute and conferences. He has been honored with several awards and citations in recognition to his contributions in the field of basic and applied research. These include the MRSI Medal, BHEL citation, and Rotary Club of Bhopal Award. He is a Fellow of the Indian Plastics Institute, ex-fellow of Institute of Materials; and a member of the Materials Research Society of India (past chairman MRSI Bhopal chapter). His research interest includes polymer and fiber science and technology, polymer nanocomposites, nanofibers, and waste utilization.
