Abstract: Let $ B$ be a finite-dimensional commutative algebra generated by a single element, and let $ A = B \otimes B$. We prove that the fixed subalgebra of $ A$ under the involution $ {b_1} \otimes {b_2} \mapsto {b_2} \otimes {b_1}$ is Frobenius if and only if either the characteristic of $ B$ is different from 2 or $ B$ is separable.
