The zero divisors of $R/I$ for every ideal $I$ of a Noetherian ring is a finite union of primes. We take this property as a definition and study the class of rings so defined. Such rings are stable under localization and quotients. They are not stable under integral closure and are highly unstable under polynomial adjunction. The length of maximal $R$ sequences is well defined on them. In this paper all rings are commutative with unit and all modules are unitary.
