Let S be a unital ring, S[t; σ, δ] a skew polynomial ring where σ is an injective endomorphism and δ a left σ -derivation, and suppose f ε S[t; σ, δ] has degree m and an invertible leading coefficient. Using right division by f to define the multiplication, we obtain unital nonassociative algebras Sf on the set of skew polynomials in S[t; σ, δ] of degree less than m. We study the structure of these algebras. When S is a Galois ring and f base irreducible, these algebras yield families of finite unital nonassociative rings A, whose set of (left or right) zero divisors has the form pA for some prime p. For reducible f, the Sf can be employed both to design linear (f, σ, δ)-codes over unital rings and to study their behaviour.
