Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) nanocomposites have been synthesized. The nanocomposites which prepared by sol-gel method were mixed to various concentrations of PVA using magnetic stirrer bar of 500 rpm at 80 o C. After the solvent evaporates, the white suspensions were casted on to a flat metal and the film-like composites formed. Those samples were characterized including tensile for mechanical test follow ISO-527-2 and melting points for thermal analysis using DSC operated at 20 o C/min with the
