Abstract

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the development of sustainable materials to address the environmental challenges posed by conventional synthetic materials. Jackfruit (Artocarpusheterophyllus), a tropical fruit native to South and Southeast Asia, has emerged as a promising candidate for sustainable composite materials due to its abundant availability, low cost, and unique combination of mechanical and chemical properties. This review emphasizes the sustainable aspects of jackfruit composites, focusing on their biodegradability, renewability, and eco-friendly characteristics. The environmental impact and life cycle analysis of jackfruit-based materials are discussed, underlining their potential to reduce the carbon footprint associated with conventional materials.The latter part of the article highlights the wide-ranging applications of jackfruit composite materials. Challenges and future perspectives in the development and commercialization of jackfruit composites are also discussed, emphasizing the need for continued research in areas such as processing optimization, scalability, and cost-effectiveness. In conclusion, this comprehensive review provides valuable insights into the burgeoning field of jackfruit composite materials, offering a holistic understanding of their synthesis, properties, and applications in material engineering.
