√ As a reducing agent. It is used to reduce titanium, zirconium, niobium, tantalum and other important metals used in defense industry from their fused halides.

√ As chemical raw materials. For the production of butadiene rubber, sodium hydrogen, sodium peroxide, sodium cyanide, sodium carbonate and other sodium compounds,

√ Make alloys. An alloy of sodium with mercury, sodium amalgam, used as a reducing agent in organic synthesis. Sodium lead alloy, used in the production of gasoline antiknock agent. Sodium potassium alloy, used as a coolant and heat exchanger in nuclear reactors.

√ Be an electric light source. The yellow light of sodium vapor is strong through fog, and the high pressure sodium lamp made of sodium is widely used in highway lighting.

√ An isotope of sodium.Na-24 is radioactive and is used for radiotracer analysis in biological research.
