Abstract: A nearly $ (1,1)$ algebra is a finite dimensional strictly power-associative algebra satisfying the identity $ (x,x,y) = (x,y,x)$ where the associator $ (x,y,z) = (xy)z - x(yz)$. An algebra A has a Wedderburn decomposition in case A has a subalgebra $ S \cong A - N$ with $ A = S + N$ (vector space direct sum) where N denotes the radical (maximal nil ideal) of A.

D. J. Rodabaugh has shown that certain classes of nearly $ (1,1)$ algebras have Wedderburn decompositions. The object of this paper is to expand these classes. The main result is that a nearly $ (1,1)$ algebra A containing 1 over a splitting field of characteristic not 2 or 3 such that A has no nodal subalgebras has a Wedderburn decomposition.
