Immobilization in polyacrylamide gel is a technique based on the polymerization of acrylamide with N,N′-methylene-bis-acrylamide (Bis) as the cross-linking agent. The degree of cross-linking is controlled by adjusting the ratio of acrylamide to Bis used. Being nonionic in nature, polyacrylamide is the most widely used matrix for entrapping enzymes.
