          contained in dissolved form in said acid, of a principal amine              
          which is sparingly soluble or insoluble in water.                           
               The following references are relied upon by the examiner               
          as evidence of obviousness:

          Brunnmueller et al.           0,041,134                Dec.  9,             
          1981                                                                        
          (Brunnmueller) (EP)                                                         
               Claim 28 is rejected under the first paragraph of 35                   
          U.S.C.  112 because “the specification, as originally filed,               
          does not provide support for the invention as is now claimed”               
          (answer, page 4).  It is the examiner’s basic position that                 
          “the specification only sets forth that the invention provides              
          a procedure for removing sulfonated organic phosphorous                     
          compounds and other impurities from dilute sulfuric acid”                   
          (answer, page 4) and therefore does not support the claim 28                
          feature directed to “unsulfonated organic phosphorous                       
          compounds”.                                                                 

                                          3
