NaCl reduction with Mg?


Sorry this is another "sodium question", but I've seen a lot of people make sodium metal from NaOH using Mg as a reducer. I've also read the two large threads about it on here:

https://www.sciencemadness.org/whisper/viewthread.php?tid=21...

But I can't see where anyone used NaCl alone with Mg to produce Na metal. Does it not work? Do you have to use NaOH to get the reduction to work?

Thanks for the help

Ah, so you are aware of the proper sodium thread. You even identified it exactly in your post. You just didn't bother to write your question there. Please repost to that thread.
