Antoine showed that the properties of Armendariz and NI are independent of each other. The study of Armendariz and NI rings has been doing important roles in the research of zero-divisors in noncommutative ring theory. In this article we concern a new class of rings which generalizes both Armendariz and NI rings. The structure of such sort of ring is investigated in relation with near concepts and ordinary ring extensions. Necessary examples are examined in the procedure.
