Abstract: It is shown that the graded ring $ R[{x_1},{x_2}, \cdots ][[t]]$ of homogeneous power series is a graded UFD if R is a regular UFD, the degrees of the $ {x_i}$ are positive and tend to $ \infty $, and t has degree $ - 1$. In particular this applies to $ M{U^ \ast }(C{P^\infty })$ and $ B{P^ \ast }(C{P^\infty })$.
