Literature data concerning the preparation of polymer-polymer nanocomposites via solvent crazing of polymers which is accompanied by polymer dispersion into fine (1-100 nm) aggregates composed of oriented molecules are analyzed. This phenomenon of solvent crazing is used for the preparation of nanoporous polymer matrices based on various amorphous and semicrystalline polymers. Introduction of a monomer into the nanoporous structure of the crazed polymer and its further in situ polymerization allow preparation of various polymer-polymer nanocomposites. These nanocomposites are characterized by specific mechanical, electric, and physicochemical characteristics. Applied aspects of the polymer-polymer composites prepared via solvent crazing are considered.
