The highly reactive nature of Sodium prevented its isolation until 1807, which was accomplished by Davy.
Sodium is the sixth most abundant Element on Earth, making up 2.6% of the surface of the Earth.
Sodium can be found in the Sun and the Stars.
Some important Sodium compounds are Table Salt (Sodium Chloride) and Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate).
