Abstract: We introduce a commutative associative graded algebra structure on the direct sum $ \mathcal Z$ of the centers of the Hecke algebras associated to the symmetric groups in $ n$ letters for all $ n$. As a natural deformation of the classical construction of Frobenius, we establish an algebra isomorphism from $ \mathcal Z$ to the ring of symmetric functions. This isomorphism provides an identification between several distinguished bases for the centers (introduced by Geck-Rouquier, Jones, Lascoux) and explicit bases of symmetric functions.
