Abstract


  • Hydrogels consisting of the conducting polymer PEDOT:PSS and the biopolymer gellan gum (GG) were characterized using electrical, mechanical and rheological methods. Compression testing and rheological analysis showed that the gels weakened with increasing PEDOT:PSS content. In contrast, the increasing PEDOT:PSS content resulted in an increasing electrical conductivity.
