                                            DECISION ON APPEAL                                                  
                   This appeal involves claims to a thermoset and a process for making a                        
             thermoset.  The examiner has rejected the claims as anticipated or obvious.  We have               
             jurisdiction under 35 U.S.C.  134.  We reverse.

                   The specification describes a process of making a thermoset comprising reacting              
             a polyol monomer with a polyisocyanate.  Page 2.  An isocyanate is represented by the              
             general formula R-N=C=O.  See the encyclopedia entry for isocyanate included in the                
             Evidence Appendix.  The polyol monomer has the following formula:
