synthesis

Post by george »

hello all chemists, I have two questions for you. Thanks in advance to anyone who tries to help me.

1) which is the cheapest and most effective method for the synthesis of sodium methoxide?
2) is there any book or website where I can find recipes for synthesizing various compounds?

thanks, a hug.

Add slowly chips of sodium metal to dry methanol. Avoid any water.
