The paper reviews research in the tribology o polymers carried out from the fifties of the last century to the present time. The concepts of the adhesion and deformation components of the friction force are discussed. The effect of the load, sliding velocity, and temperature on the friction force is described. Specific features of tribological properties of polymers filled with nanofillers such as organic clays and carbon nanomaterials are discussed.
