**Abstract.** We define a family of graded coproducts for
Clifford algebras over finite dimensional
real or complex vector spaces and study their basic properties.

**2000 Mathematics Subject Classification.**
11E88, 15A66, 16W30.

**Key words and phrases.** Clifford algebra, superalgebra,
graded coproduct, coalgebra.
