Abstract: This work deals with the characterization of hydrogels based on polyelectrolytes. In addition to their compressive, tensile and shear stress, the gelation process was also elucidated in more detail by tracking the rheological properties. The screening of intrinsic antibacterial activity against gram-positive as well as gram-negative bacteria also provided important information for the medical sector. To extend the field of application, the hydrogels were also tested for the encapsulation of enzymes. The diffusion limitations that occur were characterized in more detail using distinct methods.
