Abstract: Let be a saturated multiplicative set of an integral domain . Call an lcm splitting set if and are principal ideals for every and . We show that if is an -stable overring of (that is, if whenever and is principal, it follows that and if is an lcm splitting set of , then the saturation of in is an lcm splitting set in . Consequently, if is Noetherian and is a (nonzero) prime element, then is also a prime element of the integral closure of . Also, if is Noetherian, is generated by prime elements of and if the integral closure of is a UFD, then so is the integral closure of .
