No such compound. Sodium hydroxide is NaOH.

yeah, the energy required to ionize a second electron off of a Sodium atom would be really high. while theoretically possible in certain extreme conditions, it will not happen under any normal circumstances. Typically Alkali metals form +1 ions and will therefore bond easily with -1 ions (like the Hydroxyl, OH-)
