Abstract: Let be a local (Noetherian) ring. The main result of this paper asserts the existence of a local extension ring of such that (i) dominates , (ii) the residue field of is a finite purely transcendental extension of , (iii) every associated prime of (0) in contracts in to an associated prime of (0), and (iv) . In addition, it is shown that can be obtained so that either is the maximal ideal of or is a localization of a finitely generated algebra.
