Sodium electrons.
But how? can u explain me?
The electrostatic forces of attraction are very less in Na as it's an alkali metal n radius is large so the last electron is not in the hold of nucleus means it can loose the electron easily, which makes it highly reactive.;

@priyadabas but did u think over the presence of ammonia...sodium amide too can b the ans
Sodium is the most reactive metal. Yes it myt help.
solvated electrons
yup.. Na'selectrons.. find the detailed mechanism of bouvealt blanc reduction to see it in action :P
Vincent is correct. The case of solvated electrons in ammonia is a famous study subject in physical chemistry.
