1729 Ex Parte Chen et al 11373054 - (D) HOUSEL 103/double patenting FOLEY & LARDNER LLP EGGERDING, ALIX ECHELMEYER

The Examiner further finds Amine Declarant's statement that the synergy between the anion receptor and the electrode stabilizer as evidenced by Figures 6 and 7 was suprising and unexpected "is not evidence of unexpected results."  Ans. 10.  However, while we agree that the statement alone is not evidence of unexpected results, it is an essential component of Appellants' evidentiary showing.  In re Soni, 54 F.3d 745, 751 (Fed. Cir. 1995) ("Mere improvement in properties does not always suffice to show unexpected results.  In our view, however, when an applicant demonstrates substantially improved results ... and states that the results were unexpected, this should suffice to establish unexpected results in the absense of evidence to the contrary.")

Soni, In re, 54 F.3d 746, 34 USPQ2d 1684 (Fed. Cir. 1995) 707.07(f) 2145
