Sodium hydride can be used for direct intercalation into C60, resulting in superconducting material (NaH)4C60. It is primarily used as a strong base in organic synthesis. It can be used to dry some organic solvents. It has been proposed for hydrogen storage for use in fuel cell vehicles.

Hazard Statements: H260
In contact with water releases flammable gases which may ignite spontaneously.
Precautionary Statements: P223-P231+P232-P280a-P370+P378c-P402+P404-P501a
Keep away from any possible contact with water, because of violent reaction and possible flash fire. Handle under inert gas. Protect from moisture. Wear protective gloves and eye/face protection. In case of fire: Use for extinction: CO2, sand, extinguishing powder. Store in a dry place. Store in a closed container. Dispose of contents/container in accordance with local/regional/national/international regulations.
