It is shown that with every Boolean algebra 𝔄 a commutative semigroup (i.e., a commutative and associative system with the cancellation law) 𝔄* can be correlated in such a way that, for any Boolean algebras 𝔄 and 𝔅, the formulas 𝔄 ≅ 𝔅 and 𝔄* ≅ 𝔅* are equivalent, and the formula (𝔄 × 𝔅)* ≅ 𝔄* × 𝔅* holds. In consequence, the results established in the preceding note of Hanf, On some fundamental problems concerning isomorphism of Boolean algebras [Math. Scand. 5 (1957), 205–217], can be extended from Boolean algebras to commutative semigroups.
