In this paper, we examine the validity of the generalized second law (GSL) of gravitational thermodynamics in the context of interacting f(R) gravity. We take into account that the boundary of the universe to be confined by the dynamical apparent horizon in a flat FRW universe. We study the effective equation of state, deceleration parameter and GSL in this interaction-framework. We find that the evolution of the total entropy increases through the interaction term. As an example, we consider a f(R) gravity with a power-law dependence on the curvature R. Here, we find exact solutions for a model in which the interaction term is related to the total energy density of matter.
