Introduction: Making Sodium Metal - Sodium Extraction
NOTE: See my previous video, 'Making Sodium Metal' to see how I make sodium in the first place.
The reaction is as follows: 2Mg + 2NaOH = 2MgO + 2Na + H2
This is my new process of reacting NaOH and Mg in a water cooled soup can for creating elemental sodium. I also show a far from perfect extraction process to remove the sodium from the slag. It accomplishes its purpose, however inefficiently.
