Abstract: The method of single loop space decompositions, in which $ \Omega X$ is factored into minimal factors, is an important one for understanding the unstable homotopy of many simply-connected spaces $ X$. This paper begins with a survey of the major known theorems along these lines. We then give a necessary and sufficient condition for $ \Omega X$ to be decomposable as a product of spaces belonging to a certain list. We conclude with a nontrivial instance of an application of this condition.
