Information @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Sodium is an element which has the symbol Na (Latin natrium, from Arabic natrun).
  • Sodium is a soft, silvery white, highly reactive element and is a member of the alkali metals within "group 1".
  • Pure sodium metal has virtually no practical application since it reacts vigourously under normal enironmental conditions.
    Sodium is an abundant metallic element which is widely distributed. However, because of its high reactivity is not found naturally in its elemental state.
  • Sodium is produced commercially by the same procedure used for isolating the first samples of the pure metal nearly two centuries ago. The procedure is based on the electrolysis of molten sodium chloride (NaCl), table salt.
  • Sodium metal is isolated by the electrolysis of fused caustic soda.
    The commercial electrolytic process is called the Downs process.
  • Sodium metal is manufactured using the Castner Process, where fused caustic soda which is mixed with a little carbon and iron is subjected to electrolysis.
  • Sodium Chloride is present at a concentration of 3.5% in seawater.
  • Sodium is detected in its compounds by the bright yellow colouration which it imparts to flames when burned and by spectroscopic methods.
  • Sodium metal is used in the manufacture of sodium peroxide, sodium cyanide and sodamide.
    It is uses as a coolant in some nuclear reactors.
  • Sodium has been used for many years to modify aluminium silicon alloys.
  • Sodium metal is used in a wide range of applications in metal
    refining and as an intermediate product in the manufacture of chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
  • Liquid sodium metal is used as the heat transfer fluid in fast reactors .
    Sodium compounds are important to the chemical, glass, metal, paper, petroleum, soap, and textile industries.
  • The simultaneous determination of sodium and potassium in serum can be done by flame photometry technique.
  • The developments in sodium technology resulting in its handling as a conventional engineering heat-transfer medium.
  • The solubility of oxygen in sodium was determined over the range 125 t o 300C by vacuum disti1lation .
  • Overall U.S. demand for sodium metal tends to follow general activity in the U.S. economy and demand in the sectors in which it is used.
  • All market participants reported that all of their commercial sales of sodium metal were to end users.
  • The domestic sodium metal industry has experienced rising costs of production at the same time that sales prices have remained essentially flat.
