This product is extremely reactive; it must be handled very carefully and packaged in an inert oil, free from air and moisture. In England, sodium metal has two principal uses: in the production of the fuel additive tetraethyl lead from chloroethane (very little tetraethyl lead is used in the U.S. because of EPA regulations regarding the use of lead-free gasoline); the second major use of sodium metal is to displace titanium and zirconium from their chlorides to produce the pure metals required for high-technology aerospace applications. The program also demonstrates the reactivity of fluorine
