We prove that if s is a solvable Lie algebra of matrices over a eld of characteristic and A ∈ s, then the semisimple and nilpotent summands of the Jordan-Chevalley decomposition of A belong to s if and only if there exist S, N ∈ s, S is semisimple, N is nilpotent (not necessarily [S, N] = ) such that A = S + N.
