In this work the possibility of forming nanocomposite materials based on polyethylene oxide and hybrid organo-inorganic “core-shell” systems known as molecular silicasols with a modified external layer is studied. The chemical structure of a particle shell similar to the polymer matrix monomeric unit allows one to decrease the surface tension on the disperse phase-disperse medium interface. The level of compatibility of the components and its influence on the molecular weight of the polymer matrix was estimated based on interferometry and viscometry data, as well as an analysis of the concentration dependence of MFI, dielectric, and mechanical properties of the composites.
