Appellant maintains that:

[i]n more than twenty years of prosecuting patent applciation, the undersigned attorney has been told by many an examiner, as well as appelate judges, that catalysis is [a] very unpredictable art.

Br., page 13.  One need not look too far to confirm counsel's experience. Corona Cord Tire Co. v. Dovan Chem. Corp., 276 U.S. 358, 368-9 (1928)("The catalytic action of an accellerator cannot be forecast by its chemical composition, for such action is not understood and is not known except by actual test."); Windemuth v. Brenner, 265 F.Supp. 487 (D.D.C. 1967)(catalytic action not predictable).  But, counsel's experience and the Corona and Windemuth observations are not applicable to the facts of this case.
