Application

Sodium hydride (60% dispersion in mineral oil) (NaH) can be used for a variety of applications such as:
  • preparation of a plasticizer for the formation of a solid polymer electrolyte (SPE) for optoelectronic application
  • synthesis of heteroaryl thioethers, the common constituents in therapeutic compounds
  • preparation of sodium aluminum hydride (NaAlH4), which can be used as a hydrogen storage material(3)
  • a base and a reducing agent for the deprotonation of alcohols, phenols, amides, ketones, and different functional groups(4)
  • for potential usage in thermal energy storage(5)

Direct intercalation into C60 results in the superconducting material (NaH)4C60.
