How to Write a Technical Disclosure for Patent Drafting



Inventor's technical disclosure is very important as it serves as the basis for the patent attorney's communication with the inventor.
The technical disclosure should contain the following contents, technical background, purpose of the invention, technical solutions, embodiments, technical effects, alternative solutions, and references. Now let's discuss each one in turn.
1.Technical Background
The technical background allows the attorney to know the present invention's background and understand what others do, aka the existing solutions, and the inconveniences, that are the shortcomings of the current technology.

2. Purpose of the invention

This part clarifies the technical problem to be solved by the invention, that is, why am I doing this?
The inventor can list the technical problems to be solved item by item, try not to be too general and ambiguous, and avoid exaggeration or advertising.

3. Technical solutions

Technical solutions are used to show “how I do it”. This is the most critical part of the entire technical disclosure, and the technical means used to solve each technical problem and the corresponding specific embodiments shall be described in detail with reference to the drawings.

Please note: At least one complete technical solution should be described in detail. For example, for products, the specific shape, structure, and connection relationship should be described. For methods, the specific steps or process flow and parameters should be described. In addition, their preferred or optimal solution should be described.

The technical solutions in this part are generally subject to the fact that those skilled in the art can fully implement the technical solutions based on the prior art they are familiar with. Those skilled in the art should also be aware that these means described in the disclosure can solve the technical problems mentioned in the technical background.

4. Embodiments

It is best to write the embodiments in combination with the drawings or tables to explain "how I do it specifically".

This part is the specific refinement and explanation of the technical solutions. For the fields of materials, chemistry, biology, and pharmaceutical, this part needs to provide examples and comparative examples with experimental data.

5. Technical effects

The inventor needs to explain the beneficial technical effect of his solution, i.e., what makes it better than others.

The technical effects should be the advantages and effects of the disclosure over the prior art, and it is suggested to describe one by one corresponding to the specific means. For a beneficial effect to be convincing, sometimes experiments are required.

6. Alternative solutions

For the technical solution, the inventor should consider whether there are alternative solutions that can also achieve the invention‘s purpose, so as to give as many variations as possible, which can help to summarize a larger scope of protection。

7. References

Any references that will help the attorney understand the background, the prior art and the technical solutions in the present disclosure can be provided.
If the inventor has published or is about to publish a paper relating to the technical disclosure, be sure to let the attorney know so that he/she can make the appropriate arrangements.
