The ionic solid crystal which is formed is non-volatile and non- conducting in nature. It reacts violently with water to produce dihydrogen gas.
The formula of this compound is NaH and its reaction with water is given below
NaH (s) + H2O (aq) →NaOH (aq) +H2 (g)
On electrolysis of the melt of this solid, following reaction will take place-
2H- (melt) → H2 (g) + 2e-
The melt is able to conduct electricity and liberate Dihydrogen gas at anode on electrolysis.
