Abstract: Let ${S^1}(G)$ be a Segal algebra on a locally compact group. The central functions of ${S^1}(G)$ are dense in the center of ${L^1}(G)$. ${S^1}(G)$ has central approximate units iff G $G \in [SIN]$. This is a generalization of a result of Reiter on the one hand and of Mosak on the other hand. The proofs depend on the structure theorems of [SIN]- and [IN]-groups. In the second part some new examples of Segal algebras are constructed. A locally compact group is discrete or Abelian iff every Segal algebra is right-invariant. As opposed to the results, the proofs are not quite obvious.
