My question is:
Why is the electrolysis of molten salt the most economically viable way of extracting sodium and aluminumn but not iron?
- I know that iron cannot be extracted using this method because it is too reactive, therfore a chemical/commercial process has to be used.
- And i think that any other way of extracting Al except by using electrolysis of molten salt will not give you a high process aluminumn. For sodium i don't think there is any other way except 'electrolysis of molten salt'.
I'm just not completely sure,
