# Embedding commutative associative rings in non associative rings [closed]

Let $R$ be a commutative and associative ring with unit. Can $R$ be embedded in a ring $\hat{R}$ wich is both non commutative and non associative ?

Thanks guys !

What do you mean by a nonassociative ring? –  MTS Nov 4 '11 at 16:34
And what do you mean by embedded? If I say that a ring $A$ is embedded in another ring $B$, I mean that there is an injective ring homomorphism from $A$ to $B$. What kind of morphism do you want from your associative ring to your nonassociative "ring"? –  MTS Nov 4 '11 at 16:36
I posted very similar comments, but then deleted them when I realized there is a wikipedia article on nonassociative rings, and it's the first hit from a google search. The second question is harder to answer...I don't know what subobjects are for these so-called non-associative rings. –  David White Nov 4 '11 at 16:51
