Abstract:  
Let F be an algebraically closed field and let R be a locally finite algebra over F. This paper aims to
show that any element of R is a product of at most three unipotent elements from R if and only if the element
lies in the first derived subgroup of the unit group of R. In addition, this necessary and sufficient condition is
applied to twisted group algebras of locally finite groups over a field of either zero characteristic or characteristic
p =ÃÂ¸ 0 for some prime p. Moreover, we explore some crucial properties satisfied by certain algebras like the
conditions concerned with the connections between unipotent elements of index 2 and commutators, as well
as we investigate the unipotent radical of some subgroups of a finitedimensional algebra R over a field F with
at least four elements. In particular, we again apply these results to twisted group algebras.
