Sodium

Sodium

Sodium, a mineral element essential for life, is considered an alkali metal and a mononuclidic element. Due to its lightness, sodium floats on water, even decomposing, releasing dihydrogen and forming soda.  When stored in an inert atmosphere of nitrogen (N), argon or oil, sodium is considered an excellent conductor of electricity. The largest sodium compounds produced by the industry are sodium chloride, caustic soda and sodium carbonate.
