Some properties of particulate-filled polymer nanocomposites including structural features are reviewed. Novel effects found in these materials, such as nanoadhesion, reinforcement mechanisms, etc., are discussed. A structural analysis is performed using a fractal analysis procedure and the cluster model of the structure of a polymer in an amorphous state. The application prospects of these materials are examined in comparison with other polymer nanocomposites.
