Following up on Koethe conjecture I was wondering if the Koethe conjecture holds for non associative rings. My impression is that, it does not hold.But I am not sure ! Am I right ? Can you produce a counter example ?

Cheers, Nick

It would seem appropriate to state the conjecture here. – Joel Dodge Oct 18 '11 at 14:47
