This review focuses on the synthesis of polymer-inorganic hybrid nanocoposites under microwave irradiation, a research area that has made rapid progress in the recent years. Nowadays, one of the cornerstones of the push towards the future improvements in electronics and optics technology together with the research and development is the decrease in size of the various components used for the device manufacture. The paper discusses the preparation and characterization of polymer nanocomposites composed of layer materials like clays and layered double hydroxides, metal nanoparticles and nanowires as well as carbon based materials (i.e., fullerenes and nanotubes) under microwave conditions. The polymer nanocomposites are grouped accordingly to a such classification.
