Abstract: The second cohomology group of Lie algebras of kind $ L \otimes U$ with trivial coefficients is investigated, where $ L$ admits a decomposition with one-dimensional root spaces and $ U$ is an arbitrary associative commutative algebra with unit. This paper gives a unification of some recent results of C. Kassel and A. Haddi and provides a determination of central extensions of certain modular semisimple Lie algebras.
