Sodium. Vial containing a sample of the alkali metal sodium (Na). Sodium is highly reactive and reacts rapidly with water and oxygen in the air, therefore is usually kept in oil. It occurs widely in nature, principally as sodium chloride (NaCl, salt) in sea water and salt deposits. Sodium ions are essential to life.
