Abstract: Advances made in the field of materials science leads to technological development. Nowadays, composite materials, used in various fields such as engineering, industry, medicine are corrosion resistance and have lightweight and high fatigue strength, and promise faster assembly –they can withstand loads, insulate or conduct heat and electricity, accept or reject magnetic flux, transmit or reflect light, be stable in hostile environments, and possesses all these characteristics cost-effectively and with minimal impact to the environment. The chosen material needs to be compatible with the manufacturing process; because even with the right materials, an incorrect manufacturing process can be disastrous. This study displays the impact of organoclay and/or natural fibers on the performance of polysulfone (PSF) nanocomposite materials for variable applications. First, PSF production and properties are outlined, and then a detailed study of organoclay and its importance as nanofiller in polymer matrices has been investigated, with a special attention to PSF. Properties of natural fibers reinforced variable nanocomposites for wide range of application together with PSF in the form of nanocomposites have also been researched and analyzed. Moreover, the recent research on the hybrid nanocomposite-based clay/natural fiber in the presence of different polymers has been also displayed in details.
