Add one piece at a time and wait until the reaction is complete before adding another piece. After the sodium metal reaction is completed, continue stirring for 30 minutes. Slowly add cold ethanol dropwise to decompose unreacted sodium metal. The upper oil layer was separated, washed twice with hot water, dried over anhydrous sodium sulfate, fractionated under reduced pressure, and the fractions at 193-198°C were collected to obtain 150g of n-eicosane (1), with a yield of 51%.
