Given a connected linear algebraic group G over an algebraically closed field C of characteristic 0, we construct a pure Picard-Vessiot extension for G, namely, a Picard-Vessiot extension ε ⊃ ℱ, with differential Galois group G, such that ε and ℱ are purely differentially transcendental over C. The differential field ε is the quotient field of a G-stable proper differential subring ℛ with the property that if F is any differential field with field of constants C and E ⊃ F is a Picard-Vessiot extension with differential Galois group a connected subgroup H of G, then there is a differential homomorphism ø: ℛ → E such that E is generated over F as a differential field by ø(ℛ).
