Abstract: Let $ C(X,Q)$ denote the algebra of all continuous quaternion-valued functions vanishing at infinity on a locally compact Hausdorff space $ X$. Under the natural norm (the sup norm) and under the spectral radius norm, $ r(f)$, which is equivalent to the sup norm, $ C(X,Q)$ is a Banach algebra. Let $ \delta (f)$ be any multiplicative norm for $ C(X,Q)$; i.e., one under which it is a normed algebra. It is shown that $ \delta (f)$, whether or not it is complete, majorizes the natural norm and $ r(f)$. Under certain conditions on the radical of the completion of $ \delta (f),\delta (f)$ is equivalent to the natural norm and $ r(f)$.
