Well sodium CAN explode in sufficient quantity. Did you see the thing on the sodium party? Looks dangerous. I'd have to agree with mitch, that posting the "how-to" on dangerous reactions is a bad idea. As for the thermite thread, I didn't ask how to ignite or prep it for a reason, cause I already know and thats something that needs to be researched if you're bent on doing it.

Well, anyone who is careful enough to handle explosives can probably find out the how-to stuff without our help. Speaking of witch, I’m designing a vacuum chamber for handling sodium, potassium, phosphorus etc.

You'd best be suited by designing an inert gas chamber to handle Na, K, etc.  The big problem with them is that, even though they're explosive with water, they leave behind a lot of nasty chemicals, like NaOH, etc.  You don't want to breathe that or get it in your eyes--the strong base can burn your retina out.

Although you say that you do your own research, as a HS student with no chemistry training and no access to a university library or better, I'd say that you're asking for at least a bit of trouble when working with energetic or hazardous materials.  I hope you don't hurt yourself.

I will take safety precautions, and only make the stuff in small amounts.
