    Ich bin ziemlich sicher, dass das 'besonder bevorzugt' über irgendeine Übersetzungskette aus 'höchstens' o.Ä. entstanden ist. -> 'at most'
    Ob man die Redundanz von 'maximum' und 'at most' irgendwie auflöst, sei dahingestellt.

    Und ich bin nicht nur ziemlich, sondern sogar sehr sicher, dass das "besonders bevorzugt" nichts mit einer "Übersetzungskette" zu tun hat. Das ist normaler Sprachgebrauch in Patenten.
    Dementsprechend entsteht auch keine Redundanz.

    spring to mind. - ich finde besonders bevorzugt eigenartig

    Patentsprache ist manchmal eigenartig...

    I was interested in what you said in #2 regarding "besonders bevorzugt."

    My questions are whether the OP's English translation thereof is correct, and whether the translation is also a common expression in US patent practice.

    this still bothers me - particularly/especially preferred/preferable?

    @5: preferably...., more preferably..., most preferably is used all the time in patents, and you also often see particularly preferably.

    The idea is that you claim a broad range, such as "20 to 100 degrees C", and gradually whittle it down to the range you have found to work best, so that you can strike away the less relevant bits during the grant procedure if necessary without giving up the core part, and at the same time having the option of broader protection if the examiner does not find anything. So if your optimum is 55 degrees, you might put "20 to 100, preferably 30 to 90, more preferably 40 to 75, most preferably 50 to 60, especially 55" in your patent application.
