Abstract: Decompositions of products of the Ray elements by free generators of small dimensions in the symplectic cobordism ring are obtained. In particular it is stated that most of the dimensional generators, for small, after multiplication by the Ray elements , , land in the ideal generated by Ray elements of low dimension.
