Find Prior Art for a Specific Technology?

TOPIC: In this example you are conducting a prior art search for a specific technology by searching for patents where dry ice is used to clean grafitti using the "building block" approach. Combine synonyms with the OR operator. The "ORed" sets can be combined with different sets easily as the search progresses. The synonym sets can be combined with AND or closer proximity operators, (e.g.: (5n)).

Use Derwent World Patents Index® (File 351) to see descriptive titles and abstracts.

 

COMMAND SUMMARY

BEGIN 351
SELECT CARBON()DIOXIDE OR CO2 OR CO()2 OR DRY()ICE
SELECT REMOV? OR CLEAN? OR BLAST?
SELECT PAINT OR GRAFITI OR GRAFITTI OR GRA??ITI OR GRA?ITTI
SELECT S1 AND S2 AND S3
TYPE S4/6/1-3
SELECT S1 AND S3(5N)S3
TYPE S5/TI/1-3
TYPE S5/3/2


HOW TO...



1. BEGIN 351, Derwent World Patents Index, containing descriptive titles of patents.

 

2. SELECT as many synonyms as possible and combine them using the OR operator.
