Yes you actually can. If you mix Sodium Hydroxide with Magnesium or Aluminum powder and ignite it there will be a thermite. If you pour the slag into a container of mineral oil and water the sodium goes to the top...

I have a question. Sodium bicarbonate is slightly soluble in aceton. It is more soluble in methanol but that will blind you. Would a sodium bicarbonate in acetone solution be electricly conductive? It might be a dumb question, but I guess it's worth asking
Btw Nile Red has a nice vid about how alkaline metals can be synthesized, but people who are trying to do it with salt and a 9V battery probably won't have a 3rd tier alcohol laying around xD

NO?? WE CANT???
It seems it is a sad factor for mee...Coz i like BOOOOMS and ya know Na is very expensive in Sri Lanka.... Ohhhh

Yes you actually can. I dont know why this is such a large thread when you CAN make sodium. You can make a NaOH thermite and it will yield sodium in the slag.
