Sodium-hydroxide formula

this is a little thing i just was bouncing around my head and came up with the formula and was just wondering if it would work in anyway.

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-)
