Perhaps it is better to phrase the question in terms of Lie algebras. For instance, if you want to know which are the possible codimension one Lie subalgebras of a given finite dimensional Lie algebra then there is a result of Tits which address exactly this.
This result has been explored by Hoffman to provide a classification of codimension one subalgebras of Lie algebras in this paper.
