Representative ferroelectric polymers, poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) and its copolymers, have been investigated in the form of blends with other functional polymers to improve their ferroelectric properties, making them suitable for a variety of emerging optoelectronic applications. Herein, contemporary developments in PVDF-based blends in particular are discussed with respect to thin-film behaviors of microstructural morphology, phase separation, and polymorphs of PVDF. The film morphologies of the blends associated with the crystallization of PVDF and/or its copolymers were determined by the miscibility and consequent phase separation of the two constituent polymers, giving rise to enhanced ferroelectric properties of the blends. In addition, the ferroelectric properties of the blends allowed for the development of a variety of unprecedented optoelectronic devices of nonvolatile memories, energy storage, and solar cells.
