Why sodium does not react with kerosene?

Sodium is a very reactive element, it is a strong reducing agent therefore it reduces oxygen and water. Compounds present in kerosene are already reduced hence no further reduction of kerosene oil can take place. Therefore Na does not show any reaction with kerosene oil.

HI,

Sodium is a very reactive metal. It reacts vigorously with oxygen and water. A lot of heat is generated in this reaction . It is therefore stored in kerosene

thumbs up plssss!!
