The literature devoted to the preparation of nanocomposites based on polyurethane and epoxy polymers and silicon dioxide is reviewed. The main methods for their production are summarized, and the properties of resulting materials are presented. The synthesis, properties, and structure of the polymers obtained by the sol-gel technique are described in detail.
