Abstract
A thin Lie algebra is a Lie algebra L, graded over the positive integers, with its �first homogeneous component L_1 of dimension two and generating L, and such that each nonzero ideal of L lies between consecutive terms of its lower central series. All homogeneous components of a thin Lie algebra have dimension one or two, and the twodimensional components are called diamonds. Suppose the second diamond of L (that is, the next diamond past L_1) occurs in degree k. We prove that if k > 5, then [Lyy] = 0 for some nonzero element y of L_1. In characteristic different from two this means y is a sandwich element of L. We discuss the relevance of this fact in connection with an important theorem of Premet on sandwich elements in modular Lie algebras.
