The peculiarities of modifying polyamide 66/6 and polystyrene thermoplastics with polyvinylpyrrolidone in the viscous state have been studied. By applying in-strumental methods, the changes in morphology and phase transitions of modified materials have been revealed. The influence of the modifier on the strength and thermo-physical properties of the researched thermoplastics was determined.
