Abstract: The main theorem is that if A is a central simple flexible algebra, with an identity, of arbitrary dimension over a field F of characteristic not 2, and if A is Lie-admissible and $ {A^ + }$ is associative, then $ {\text{ad}}\;(A)' = [A,A]/F$ is a simple Lie algebra. It is shown that this theorem applies to simple nodal noncommutative Jordan algebras of arbitrary dimension, and hence that such an algebra A also has derived algebra $ {\text{ad}}\;(A)'$ simple.
