## Abstract

Let n be the anisotropic norm of a Cayley algebra C over a field F of characteristic different from 2 where -1 is a square. Let Spin (Q:, n) be the spin group of the quadratic form n. We prove that every element in Spin((, n) is a product of two involutory elements, i.e. Spin(c, n) is bireflectional.
