Chemical inventions span a wide range of materials and applications, including agrochemicals, insecticides, catalysts, doped electrochemical compounds, polymeric materials, production processes, as well as a host of specialty chemicals and methods for engineering and processing materials in order to obtain unique physico-chemical properties. Furthermore, chemical-engineering applications in applied thermodynamics, fluid flow, heat & mass transfer, applied reaction kinetics, and reactor design also form a significant part of the core of the Chemical Arts.
In securing intellectual property in the Chemical Arts, breadth of scope, given the enabled implementations, is an important issue to consider carefully when deciding how such an invention should be claimed during the patent-drafting stage and for the IP strategy in general. Viewed traditionally as inherently complex or unpredictable arts, inventions covering a broad technical range in the Chemical Arts are often scrutinized more meticulously by the patent offices than those in the Mechanical or Electronic Arts.
FlashPoint IP, a leader among intellectual property firms, factors these wide-ranging aspects into the process of securing patent protection, whether in performing a patent search of the prior art, engaging in patent drafting of applications, selecting how and where to file, or prosecuting your claims to an invention to help you maximize value in an extensive array of practice areas. Having Ph.D. degrees and industrial experience, our patent attorneys are adept at synthesizing the many facets needed to create a winning formula for your IP.
