Definition of COMPOSITION OF MATTER


COMPOSITION OF MATTER

In describing the subjects of patents, the
Act of Congress of July 4, 1836, sect. 6, uses the words "composition
of matter;" these words are usually applied to mixtures and chemical
compositions, and in these cases it is enough that the compound is new.
Both the composition and the mode of compounding may be considered as included
in the invention, when the compound is new.
