A complex -Lie algebra is a vector space over the complex field, equipped with a skew-symmetric bracket and a bilinear form such that
for all . The notion of -Lie algebras, as a generalization of Lie algebras, was introduced in Nurowski . Fundamental results about finite-dimensional -Lie algebras were developed by Zusmanovich . In , all three-dimensional non-Lie real -Lie algebras were classified. The purpose of this note is to provide an approach to classify all three-dimensional non-Lie complex -Lie algebras. Our method also gives a new proof of the classification in Nurowski .
