Sodium methoxide is a chemical compound with the formula CH3ONa.. This colorless solid which is formed by the deprotonation of methanol is a widely used reagent in industry and the laboratory.. It is also a dangerously caustic base.. Sodium methoxide is used as an initiator of anionic addition polymerization with ethylene oxide forming a polyether with high molecular weight.. Biodiesel is prepared from vegetable oils and animal fats that is fatty acid triglycerides by transesterification with methanol to give fatty acid methyl esters FAMEs .. This transformation is catalyzed by sodium methoxide..
