Abstract: Let $ A$ be a reduced analytical $ k$-algebra of dimension $ r$ and $ A' $ its integral closure in the full ring of quotients of $ A$. We investigate the condition on $ A$ that there exist $ r$ elements $ {x_1}, \ldots ,{x_r}$ in $ A$ and $ k$-derivations $ {d_1}, \ldots ,{d_r}$ from $ A$ into $ A' $ so that $ {d_i}({x_j})$ is the $ r \times r$ identity matrix and so that $ {d_1}, \ldots ,{d_r}$ freely generate $ {\operatorname{Der} _k}(A,\,A' )$. We show this is equivalent to a number of other conditions. If $ A$ is a complete intersection, then the above is equivalent to the Jacobian ideal $ J$ becoming principal in $ A' $. If $ A / \sqrt J $ is regular of dimension $ r - 1$ and satisfies the above condition, then $ A' $ is regular.
