In , Howie considered the following problem: If [U; Si] is an amalgam of semigroups and if Ti are subsemigroups of Si such that [U; Ti]is an amalgam, is it true that ?U* Ti, the free product of the amalgam [U; Ti], is embeddable in ?U* Si the free product of the amalgam [U; Si]? He proved, among other things, that if U and Ti are unitary in Si, then the free products are embeddable.
We extend these results here using the homological techniques introduced in [4, 7]and culminate in describing those amalgamation bases which always have this property.
