This book, based on a short course the author gives for the American Chemical Society, provides the necessary insights, strategies, and examples of how to write a patent so it is not rejected by the United States Patent and Trade Office (USPTO) or the patent does not have invalid claims. The author believes he has developed the necessary methodology to make this a reality. Overall, the books approach can be broken down into the following general themes: (1) Understand the patent examiners rejection process (2) Review how a comprehensive literature search should be structured (3) Educate the patent examiner (4) Write the specification so one skilled in the art can duplicate your results without undue experimentation. This makes for a practical handbook guiding an inventor through the writing process with examples from issued patents. ÍNDICE: Preface. 1.
