We prove that if is a principal ideal ring and is a matrix with trace zero, then is a commutator, that is, for some . This generalises the corresponding result over fields due to Albert and Muckenhoupt, as well as that over due to Laffey and Reams, and as a by-product we obtain new simplified proofs of these results. We also establish a normal form for similarity classes of matrices over PIDs, generalising a result of Laffey and Reams. This normal form is a main ingredient in the proof of the result on commutators.
