The methodics of characterization of 2D-nanofiller tactoids structure in polymer matrix of nanocomposite was proposed, which shown that the indicated tactoids are fractal objects with dimension of 1.75-2.16. This variation of tactoids structural state is due to interfacial interactions. It has been shown within the framework of reinforcement percolation theory, that structure of tactoids is single factor, defining reinforcement efficiency is characterized by its ability to create interfacial regions.
