In this chapter, specific interactions and self-organization in nanocomposites containing functionalized nanoparticles (NPs) are discussed. Common techniques applied for the synthesis, modification, and functionalization of inorganic NPs are summarized. The use of such NPs in the preparation of polymer-based nanocomposites and their effects on the structure-property relationships of the resulting materials are described by some representative studies reported in the literature. In particular, nanocomposites containing (1) modified silica NPs, (2) organically modified layered silicates, and (3) polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) hybrids are addressed. Moreover, a general overview on the self-organization phenomenon is provided based on recent developments in the field of block copolymer-based nanocomposites.
