Moisture Sensitive
Soluble in ethanol and methanol.


Sodium ethoxide is used as a strong base in organic synthesis. It is actively involved in the Claisen condensation, Stobbe reaction and Wolf-kishner reduction. It is an important starting material for the synthesis of ethyl ester and diethyl ester of malonic acid. In Williamson ether synthesis, it reacts with ethyl bromide to form diethyl ether. It is widely used as a base for the generation of carbanions which are utilized for alkylation and condensation reactions.


Moisture sensitive. It undergoes hydrolysis rapidly to form sodium hydroxide in the presence of moist air. Incompatible with water, strong bases, acids, oxidizing agents, alkali metals, strong oxidizing agents, ammonia, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides, reducing agents, peroxides, acids and chlorinated solvents.

In reactions where the presence of excess ethanol is undesirable, the use of pre-formed solid sodium ethoxide is much more convenient and safer than preparation in situ from sodium metal. This applies to many literature condensation reactions which employ powdered sodium in, for example ether or toluene, where the difficulty and hazards of obtaining a satisfactory sodium dispersion can be considerable. Solid sodium ethoxide often gives superior results, with better control of exothermic reactions.

Extensively used as a base for the generation of carbanions in a variety of alkylation and condensation reactions. Organic Syntheses examples of the use of solid sodium ethoxide include:
